About Our Event:
Join us on Friday, October 26, 2018 at The Missouri Athletic Club for our annual fundraising dinner with S. Joshua Swamidass MD, PhD
About Our Speaker:
S. Joshua Swamidass MD, PhD. is a confessing Christian, a confessing scientist, a physician, and Associate Professor of Laboratory and Genomic Medicine at Washington University in Saint Louis, MO. He is also a regular speaker for Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and The Veritas Forum. He served as a Science Advisor to Concordia Seminary for AAAS Science for Seminaries and is a core member of The Carver Project. Currently, Dr Swamidass is mapping a new way forward in the origins debate through Peaceful Science.
About Unexpected Bridge Building:
Dr. Swamidass’ recent scientific work has built unexpected bridges between all sides of the origins debate by demonstrating that Adam and Eve, ancestors of us all, could have been de novo created less than 10,000 years ago somewhere in the Middle East. This work was presented, along with a working theological model, to attendees of The Dabar Conference this summer. This brought high visibility to Dr. Swamidass, especially after Christian Apologist, William Lane Craig began a two year project on the science of Adam, interacting directly with Dr. Swamidass’s work. Craig said:
“…some scientific popularizers have claimed that the genetic diversity of the present human population could not have arisen from an isolated primordial pair. Joshua Swamidass, a geneticist from Washington University… helped me to understand that this claim is completely wrong-headed.”
