According to Scripture, “the heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Join Jeff Zweerink as he explains cosmic signatures that substantiate the Bible’s declaration that the universe is designed for habitability, including:
- The four fundamental forces,
- The composition of the universe,
- The number of space-time dimensions.
Recorded on February 23, 2007, at Second Baptist Church, Houston, TX.
Jeffrey A. Zweeink thought he would follow in his father’s footsteps as a chemistry professor until a high school teacher piqued his interest in physics. Jeff pursued a BS in physics and a PhD in astrophysics at Iowa State University (ISU), where he focused his study on gamma rays—messengers from distant black holes and neutron stars. Upon completing his education, Jeff taught at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa. Postdoctoral research took him to the West Coast, to the University of California, Riverside, and eventually to a research faculty position at UCLA. He has conducted research using STACEE and VERITAS gamma-ray telescopes, and currently works on GAPS, a balloon experiment seeking to detect dark matter. A Christian from childhood, Jeff desired to understand how the worlds of science and Scripture integrate. He struggled when his scientific studies seemed to collide with his early biblical training. While an undergrad at ISU, Jeff heard Hugh Ross speak and learned of Reasons To Believe (RTB) and its ministry of reconciliation—tearing down the presumed barriers between science and faith and introducing people to their personal Creator. Jeff knew this was something he was called to be a part of. Jeff is author of Who’s Afraid of the Multiverse? and coauthor of more than 30 journal articles, as well as numerous conference proceedings. He still serves part-time on the physics and astronomy research faculty at UCLA. He directs RTB's online learning programs, Reasons Institute and Reasons Academy, and also contributes to the ministry's podcasts and daily blog, Today's New Reason to Believe. When he isn’t participating in science-faith apologetics Jeff enjoys fishing, camping, and working on home improvement projects. An enthusiastic sports fan, he coaches his children’s teams and challenges his RTB colleagues in fantasy football. He roots for the Kansas City Chiefs and for NASCAR’s Ryan Newman and Jeff Gordon. Jeff and his wife, Lisa, live in Southern California with their five children.
