Topic: The Evidence for God from Contemporary Science –
Extending the Legacy of Monsignor George Lemaître

About the Lecture
Popular media suggests that science and philosophy have difficulty providing evidence from creation for the existence of a creator God. However, developments in physical cosmology indicate the existence of a transcendent cause of creation. These advances even offer a glimpse into the nature of that cause. Father Robert Spitzer will discuss evidence for the existence of a transcendent creator and the implications for humanity and our universe.
