Some of the brightest scientific minds of our time, from Albert Einstein to Stephen Hawking, have made incredible insights into the earliest origins of the universe, but have failed to ultimately discover why there is something rather than nothing—why we exist. In this course, the student will examine the latest theories about the origins of the universe and explains why even the most sophisticated science can only take us so far. Ultimately we must exercise faith to understand the world.
The student will explore fundamental questions about why our world exists and how it functions, using principles of logic, physics, and theology. In a time when religion and science are often portrayed as diametrically opposed, the student will learn how to present a refreshing view of the interplay between science and religion and makes a compelling case for the existence of God and His role in our world.
