San Francisco's annual blockbuster literary festival Litquake returns to INFORUM for an evening with a rabbi, an astrophysicist and Nobel laureate, a biologist, and a theologian. Religion and science have long competed for the answers to questions about the origin of the universe and the existence of the soul. Our panel of experts from biology, Christianity, Judaism and physics takes up the questions that humans have been considering from time immemorial.

INFORUM is a division of The Commonwealth Club by and for people in their 20s and 30s, with a mission to inspire debate around civic issues. We are a connector between ideas, individuals and communities.
Founded in 1903, the Commonwealth Club has played host to a diverse and distinctive array of speakers, from Teddy Roosevelt in 1924 to Erin Brockovich in 2001. Along the way, Martin Luther King, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Bill Gates have all given landmark speeches at the Club.
