Reasons To Believe scholars participate in university forums and other speaking events across the U.S. and beyond.
Here Hugh Ross discusses the fossil record from an astronomer's perspective, explaining how solar flares, biodeposits, and extinction events all point to a divinely designed world. Discover how the history of life yields evidence for a Creator rather than for blind evolutionary processes.
Recorded on October 23-24, 2008 at Christ's Church in Washington, D.C.
Dr. Hugh Ross launched his career at age seven when he went to the library to find out why stars are hot. Physics and astronomy captured his curiosity and never let go. At age seventeen he became the youngest person ever to serve as director of observations for Vancouver’s Royal Astronomical Society. With the help of a provincial scholarship and a National Research Council (NRC) of Canada fellowship, he completed his undergraduate degree in physics (University of British Columbia) and graduate degrees in astronomy (University of Toronto). The NRC also sent him to the United States for postdoctoral studies. At Caltech he researched quasi-stellar objects, or “quasars,” some of the most distant and ancient objects in the universe. Not all of Hugh’s discoveries involved astrophysics. Prompted by curiosity, he studied the world’s religions and “holy books” and found only one book that proved scientifically and historically accurate: the Bible. Hugh started at religious “ground zero” and through scientific and historical reality-testing became convinced that the Bible is truly the Word of God! When he went on to describe for others his journey to faith in Jesus Christ, he was surprised to discover how many people believed or disbelieved without checking the evidence. Having grown up amid the splendor of Canada’s mountains, wildlife, and waterways, Hugh loves the outdoors. Hiking, trail running, and photography are among his favorite recreational pursuits—in addition to stargazing. Hugh lives in Southern California with his wife, Kathy, and two sons.
