M4  Proclaiming the Reality of God: Scientific and Human Evidence

       of God's Existence

Speaker: Steven Hemler

Given our increasingly secular society and the atheistic worldview often promoted by the mainstream media and academic/scientific establishment, the need to equip the faithful to credibly, convincingly, and compellingly explain and share why we believe in God has never been greater. This unique multimedia presentation provides amazing scientific evidence―as well as evidence from human nature―demonstrating God's existence. Contrary to the usual myth of a conflict between science and faith, attendees are excited to learn "the rest of the story" regarding the actual scientific evidence of God's existence, mostly presented on video by scientists themselves. This objective evidence of God's existence strengthens faith and provides parents, catechists, teachers, and others with persuasive reasons for belief, valuable for sharing with family, friends, and students who have questions about the existence of God.
