    http://www.iera.org/general/tell-me-about-god In this lecture at King's College London, Hamza Andreas Tzortzis addresses three main topics. The first is an existential point and involves the absurdity of life without God. If we can't answer the fundamental questions in life then can we ever be happy? The second topic was that God is a reality. Hamza introduces how God's existence is self evident and addresses the concept of a properly basic belief, which means that the believer in God is intellectually justified in his or her belief even without inductive or deductive evidence. This is similar to the axiom that the world is real. He then introduces the argument from consciousness by arguing that materialistic accounts of phenomenal states (subjective conscious experiences) are incoherent. He concludes by asserting that theism is a coherent and comprehensive explanation for phenomenal states. Hamza closes this topic by speaking about the Quranic argument for God's existence. Which involves assessing the possible logical explanations that explain the emergence of the universe. The last topic that Hamza addresses is based on the fact that God wants to liberate our hearts and minds. We are all slaves to context. We never chose our DNA, parents, social economic circumstances in which we were brought up, names, siblings, gender, social pressure, etc. The only way to truly liberate ourselves from this slavery is to be at service to God and to worship Him as he deserves to be worshipped, because He created you and knows you better than you know yourself, and He knows what is really good for you.

      Many people know Rwanda through photographs taken by foreign photojournalists during the 1994 genocide and its aftermath, but how do Rwandan photographers see their country today? Last November, King’s College London hosted a workshop in the Rwandan capital Kigali, bringing together 11 Rwandan photographers to capture their homeland. Zoe Norridge, from the Cultural Institute at King’s, and Nigerian photographer Andrew Esiebo talk to Thomson Reuters Foundation about their experience working with the photographers. The photographers’ images feature in an exhibition “Rwanda in Photographs: Death Then, Life Now” at Somerset House in London until April 30. MORE ON: TRUST.ORG

                  Monash Vice Chancellor Ed Byrne is departing next year from his beloved Monash University that he has ruled with an iron fist since 2006. He has secured a plum job at the UK's King College, leaving slowly with his bulging millions that he has 'made' while at Monash. He has used his ruling position to publish his putrid poetry, disproportionately raise already massive management salaries and cut over 500 jobs and increase casualisation - putting staff last and therefore also student's education quality. He has foreshadowed big cuts at Monash to be implemented next year as his parting gift.

                    • Summit Diplomacy: Some Lessons from History for 21st Century Leaders - Professor David Reynolds

                      'It is not easy to see how matters could be worsened by a parley at the summit.' Winston Churchill coined the term 'summit' in 1950, during some of the darkest days of the Cold War. In the second half of the twentieth century summit meetings became a central element of international diplomacy -- among them dramatic encounters such as Kennedy and Khrushchev at Vienna in 1961 and Reagan and Gorbachev in Reykjavik in 1986. Today summits are in the headlines all the time -- for meetings of the EU, G8 and G20 -- and the word is often used in other walks of life, especially in business. But there is relatively little reflection about what summit meetings are supposed to achieve or about their costs as well as benefits. We need to take a long view of summitry, exploring why, for most of history, leaders deliberately avoided face-to-face meetings. We should look more closely at some of the classic Cold War meetings, asking why some worked and others did not. And we also need to understand how summitry has changed since the Cold War. 'Lessons' from the past are always tentative but this lecture suggests what twenty-first century statesmen might learn from history, if they have the time and inclination. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/summit-diplomacy-some-lessons-from-history-for-21st-century-leaders Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
