The first Suter Science Seminar of the fall semester will bring a reknown scientist/astronomer to campus.

Dr. Owen Gingerich, research professor of astronomy and history of science at Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., will speak 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24, on the topic, “Dare a Scientist Believe in Design?”

Gingerich will discuss the presence of design, which supports a view of the world and cosmos as a created, purposeful universe.

The seminar is one of four scheduled for this fall. (Click here for more information on following seminars.) The seminars are made possible in part by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation and the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA).

Refreshments will be available at the Suter Science Center Auditorium 15 minutes before the presentation.

The seminar is open to the public, free of charge. For more information, call Dr. Roman J. Miller at (540) 432-4412 or e-mail millerrj@emu.edu.
