Colin Humphreys Lecture - Can a Scientist Believe in Miracles?
Wed 14 June 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
This is an excellent opportunity to hear Colin Humphreys to discuss a key area of faith: Can a Scientist Believe in Miracles?
Professor Sir Colin Humphreys is a physicist, currently the Director of Research in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy and a Fellow of Selwyn College, Cambridge. He splits his time in to three main areas of scientific interest: gallium nitride materials and devices; advanced electron microscopy; and high-temperature aerospace materials. He was awarded a CBE in 2003 for services to science as a researcher and communicator and was knighted in the 2010 Birthday Honours.
Professor Colin Humphreys has been very involved in the discussion between science and faith - and from 1994 to 2001 he was the chair person of Christians in Science, an international network of people concerned with the relationship between science and faith. His writing in the field has focussed on placing biblical events such as the Crucifixion and the Star of Bethlehem in time as well as understanding the miracles in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.
This lecture is designed for people from across the worldview spectrum: committed atheists, the sceptically minded and scientifically curious, and devoted Christian believers. All can benefit from a deeper understanding of the events surrounding the miracles of the Bible.
