Is your worldview enlightened enough to accommodate both science and God at the same time?
Dr. G is known and loved by millions as the ABC News Science Editor, a post he filled for fourteen years (1988-2002). He appeared regularly on Good Morning America, 20/20, Nightline, and World News Tonight. Dr. Michael Guillen, a best-selling author, Emmy award-winning journalist, and former physics instructor at Harvard, used to be an atheist―until science changed his mind. Once of the opinion that people of faith are weak, small-minded folks who just don’t understand science, Dr. Guillen ultimately concluded that not only does science itself depend on faith, but faith is actually the mightiest power in the universe.
At this year’s Life Imprint Dinner, Dr. Guillen will recount the fascinating story of his journey from atheism to Christianity, citing the latest discoveries in neuroscience, physics, astronomy, and mathematics to pull back the curtain on the mystery of faith as no one ever has. Is it true that seeing is believing? Or is it possible that reality can be perceived most clearly with the eyes of faith―and that truth is bigger than proof? Let Dr. Guillen be your guide as he brilliantly argues for a large and enlightened worldview consistent with both God and modern science.
