Our young people are in serious need of a defense of their faith that is both contemporary and scientific - otherwise they may fall victim to the false claims and misimpressions created by an increasingly secular society. A large percentage of our young people will become agnostics and even atheists if we do not respond to them with the best evidence that science has to offer.
"What Science Says About God" is a program designed to empower teachers to effortlessly provide students the evidence they need to be more certain about a transcendent super-intelligent creative power - God.
Based on the award winning book, New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy, by Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D., The Reason Series follows college freshman Joe as he learns to defend his faith from his atheistic roommate Tyler with the help of physics and philosophy grad students Dan and Alana.
