Florida Tech Lectures to Look at Origins
MELBOURNE, FLA. — Astronomer and author Hugh Ross, Ph.D., will present the lectures, “An Astronomer’s Quest” and “Putting Creation to the Test,” on
Wednesday, April 9, 2008, from 7 to 9 p.m. in Florida Institute of Technology’s Gleason Performing Arts Center. He will share his journey through what he
calls “the long-standing divide between faith and reason” and present the latest scientific findings that point to a creation event.
Ross will also speak on “Origins of Life and Humans” on Friday, April 11, from 7 to 9 p.m., in the Hartley Room, of the Denius Student Center, also on
campus. All presentations are free and will include an audience Q & A.
At 17, Ross was the youngest person ever to serve as director of observations for Vancouver’s Royal Astronomical Society. He earned master’s and doctoral
degrees in astronomy from the University of Toronto and was a post-doctoral fellow, studying quasars and galaxies, at California Institute of Technology.
He is founder and president of Reasons To Believe and author of 10 books, including The Creator and the Cosmos, The Fingerprint of God and his latest,
Creation as Science.
The presentations are hosted by Florida Tech’s Protestant Campus Ministry and the Melbourne chapter of Reasons To Believe. For more information about these
