“It’s such a lucky accident, having been born, that we’re almost obliged to pay attention.” - Mark Strand
The story of our existence, from the precision of the Big Bang, to the startlingly fortunate creation of our planet, to the lucky accidents at the cellular level, suggest a Creator with a plan and a purpose. But why would that Creator not make things more clear?
We will be joined by guest speaker Dr. Gregg Davidson and panelist Dr. Lillian Seu.
Dr. Gregg Davidson is chair of the Department of Geology and Geological Engineering at the University of Mississippi and conducts original research in geochemistry and hydrogeology, often employing radiometric dating methods to determine the age of groundwater and sediments. In 2009 he published a book about his keen interest in integrating a lifetime of studying geology with his firm conviction about the infallibility of God’s Word, When Faith & Science Collide – A Biblical Approach to Evaluating Evolution and the Age of the Earth.
Dr. Seu is an immunologist, having received her Ph.D. from the University of California San Francisco. She then received an NIH Fogarty Clinical Research Fellowship in Zambia (2011-2014) to strengthen clinical laboratory diagnostics for infectious diseases. During these years, the Zambian Christian community evangelized the Gospel to her in life-changing ways. Currently, she works as a scientific investigator at Bristol-Myers Squibb developing cancer immunotherapies, and she is passionate about STEM mentorship.
