In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. – Genesis 1:1
The Origins Lecture Series is produced for the Colorado Christian University and local community to explore a few of the acceptable, mainline, evangelical ideas, thoughts, and facts about how the God of the universe created our world. With five nationally known speakers on the subject – and a special panel from CCU’s School of Theology and Department of Sciences – we hope that each person attending will have stronger insight to how the world began and how their faith ties into God’s spectacular design for mankind and the planet we live on.
Guest Lecturer – Dr. Hugh Ross
Astronomer Hugh Ross is founder and president of Reasons to Believe, an organization dedicated to demonstrating the compatibility of science and Christianity. He earned his B.S. in physics from the University of British Columbia and his M.S. and Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of Toronto. He later continued research on quasars and galaxies as a postdoctoral fellow at Caltech. While in college, Hugh dedicated himself to faith in Christ following an in-depth study of Scripture that convinced him of the Bible’s factual accuracy. Today, Hugh is the author of multiple books (such as Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, More Than a Theory, and, most recently, Navigating Genesis) and speaks on science-faith issues to audiences around the world.
