In an age of science and reason, novel questions are being raised about Islam's relationship with science and in particular Darwinian evolution, this lecture will cover the:

1) Relationship between science and certainty,

2) Why Darwinian theory is based on a probabilistic framework,

3) Why it's assumptions are beginning to be challenged and the disputes that exist about it's most fundamental ideas,

4) Darwinism as a religious and ethical system,
