Who is Afraid of Scientists? How a Non-Scientist Can Help Scientists Believe in God
with Peter Imming

Often Christians don't know how to respond to naturalistic arguments against the existence of God. The youth of the church are left without confidence that the gospel is still true in a world dominated by science. Do you have to understand the function of the bacterial flagellum to be able to discuss faith with proponents of naturalism, or are there easier ways to challenge their premises? Which questions can help? What arguments can a non-scientist use in order to show the plausibility of the Christian faith? Peter Imming is a professor of pharmaceutical chemistry and is also frequently involved in youth ministry.  Alexander Fink is the director of the Institute for Faith and Science and also works with students. Apart from sharing their experiences, there will be time for interaction.
