This event is co-presented by the Society of Catholic Scientists and the Science and Religion Initiative at the McGrath Institute for Church Life, and is co-sponsored by the Lumen Christi Institute. 

"Its beginnings are no measure of its capabilities, nor of its scope." These words of St. John Henry Newman describing the character of great ideas works equally well in describing the human species. For many, what we were in prehistory is what defines us now. But the Christian faith has a much different, and more exciting, perspective. In this presentation, Chris Baglow will connect the beginning and the end of humanity, relying on Scripture, Tradition and the insights of modern science as well as modern theologians.
