Unlikely Earth: God’s Providence Seen in Climate Change
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, April 22 @ 12:00 pm PDT
Presenter: Hugh Ross, Ph.D. (Astronomy, University of Toronto)
Webinar: Wednesday, April 22, 2020 @ 5:15 - 7:15 pm PDT
God's Providence usually refers to God's ordering of human events. But before God arranged His exquisite sequencing of
how things happen for people, God providentially prepared the vast universe to make a suitable place for human life. The only
place possible in the entire cosmos for people to survive is tiny planet Earth. That's why Earth is an observatory for the study of
God's Providence. God providentially set up the creation process miraculously by His Word, yet scientifically we can view
the intricacies of God's planning, even with regard to climate change. What we find is that Earth is extremely improbable.
Statistically Earth should not exist. But by the power of God's Providence, it does. In this scientific discussion, we will explore
theologically how God's Providence in creation sets the stage for God's Providence in history.
About the Presenter:
Dr. Hugh Ross is an astronomer and best-selling author of almost a dozen books. He travels the globe speaking on the compatibility of scientific discoveries with the timeless truths of Christianity. His organization, Reasons to Believe (RTB), is dedicated to demonstrating that science and biblical faith logically accord. After Hugh’s study of big bang cosmology convinced him of the Creator's existence, curiosity led Dr. Ross to test religious "holy books" for scientific and historical accuracy. Only the Bible passed the test. That is how this former Cal Tech professor came to become a prominent apologist for the gospel.
Dr. Hugh Ross earned a degree in Physics from the University of British Columbia on a National Research Council of Canada fellowship. He then earned his PhD in astronomy from the University of Toronto. For several years he continued his research on quasars and galaxies as a postdoctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology. In 2012, Dr. Ross with Dr. Gerald Schroeder, received the Ide P. Trotter Prize presented by Texas A&M University in recognition of his work in demonstrating connections between science and religion.
