A multimedia presentation, "Sacred Science: Evidential Inspiration and Realistic Hope" with Reverend Michael Dowd will be offered at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, in McDaniel Hall Room 101 on the Adams State University Campus.

Dowd, "America's evolutionary evangelist," shows how a meaningful, science-based view of big history, human nature, and death can offer a realistically hopeful and inspiring vision of the future and help people live happier, healthier, more purposeful lives.

This program expands on a TEDx talk and program Dowd delivered at the United Nations, and draws on material in his bestselling, bridge-building book, Thank God for Evolution: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World, endorsed by 6 Nobel laureates and other science luminaries, including noted skeptics and atheists, and by religious leaders across the spectrum.

Dowd is one of the most inspiring science-based speakers in America today. He and his wife, Connie Barlow, an acclaimed science writer, have spoken to more than 1,600 groups since launching their itinerant ministry in 2002. Their work has been featured in The New York Times, LA Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, Discover magazine, and on CNN, Fox News, and ABC News.

This event is aimed at an audience 17 years and older and is open to the public. Sponsored by United Campus Ministry at Adams State University.
