1900 Monday 16 March 2015 - Dr. Michael Denton in Washington Square Hall
Ratio Christi would like to invite you on Monday, March 16 at 7PM in Washington Square Hall 207 for a lecture with Dr. Michael Denton.
Talk Title: "The Place of Life and the Humanity in the Cosmos"
Talk Description: Are humans the accidental products of a blind and uncaring universe? Or are they the beneficiaries of a cosmic order that was planned beforehand to help them flourish? Join geneticist and author Michael Denton as he explores scientific evidence showing how both the universe and the Earth are exquisitely fine-tuned to make human life and the life of other organisms possible.
Bio for Dr. Denton: Dr. Denton holds an MD from Bristol University and a PhD in biochemistry from King's College in London. From 1990-2005, he was a Senior Research Fellow in the Biochemistry Department at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. He is the author of two path-breaking books, Nature's Destiny: How the Laws of Biology Reveal Purpose in the Universe and Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, as well as many technical articles in major scientific journals. Dr. Denton's research has led to the identification of several new retinal disease genes including the gene used in the first successful gene therapy trial at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London in 2009.
Hope you can join us. Please share with anyone who you think will be interested. Thank you, and we hope to see you there!
