Life Emerging in an Ancient Universe

Mar 12, 2018

2:00pm – 3:00pm CT

Modern telescopes are enabling exciting discoveries scarcely imagined by earlier generations, ranging from infant galaxies and dark matter to star nurseries and exoplanets. These findings shed light on a universe that has been growing more mature, complex, and hospitable for life for almost 14 billion years. This session will highlight the scientific insights from some of these incredible discoveries and host a discussion of our human identity and the significance of life in a vast, ancient, and awesome universe. Speakers will also discuss theological interpretations of life emerging in an ancient evolving universe and what this might mean for faith perspectives on these issues.
