Renowned Synthetic Chemist Speaks on "The Mystery of the Origin of Life"

A Free Webinar with Dr. James Tour of Rice University

A world-renowned synthetic chemist at Rice University, Dr. James Tour, has caused quite a stir in both the field of chemistry and culture at large by challenging the “just-so” stories that materialist scientists tell regarding the origin of life. His fascinating research into nanomachines, and their potential use in treating cancer and other diseases, has helped him to see the complexity and precision required to develop even the simplest of living organisms capable of surviving and reproducing on primordial earth.

On Thursday, September 9th, you’ll have the opportunity to hear Dr. Tour speak on “The Mystery of the Origin of Life” during a webinar organized by The Christian Medical & Dental Association, C.S. Lewis Institute, and Erskine Theological Seminary. Following the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Tour questions.

While not a Center for Science & Culture event, we are pleased to share this opportunity with our subscribers, many of whom are interested in this topic. To learn more or to register, visit the Christian Medical & Dental Association’s event webpage.
