@.InshAllah. Without quoting the video, I thank you for it. If anyone watched the video here at ShiaChat, this is a quote from the description of the video uploaded to youtube:


Full length coverage from the Templeton Prize 2017 ceremony on Sunday, September 24, at The Field Museum, Chicago, Illinois.

Philosopher Alvin Plantinga was awarded the 2017 Templeton Prize for his rigorous writings over a half century which have made theism – the belief in a divine reality or god – a serious option within academic philosophy. Plantinga’s pioneering work began in the late 1950s, a time when academic philosophers generally rejected religiously informed philosophy. Today, however, university philosophy departments around the world include thousands of professors who bring their religious commitments to bear on their work, including Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, and Muslim philosophers.

Three scholars on whom the influence of Alvin Plantinga has been profound celebrated his work at Sunday’s ceremony: Dr. Hamza Yusuf, president of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, California, America’s first accredited Muslim liberal arts college; Dr. Yoram Hazony, president of the Herzl Institute in Jerusalem; and Dr. Meghan Sullivan, professor of philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.
