A Bushey Living Torah presentation held on Tuesday 17th June, 8.30pm

In the beginning …….. Bushey created a time and space for one such Physics Professor Gerald Schroeder, an Orthodox Jewish physicist, author, lecturer and teacher from Jerusalem who focuses on what he perceives to be an inherent relationship between science and spirituality.

Is the beginning of time 14 billion years ago or as the bible states 5,574 year ago? How can the two statements be justified?

Schroeder explains all about mutations and the discovery of genetic duplication and the relationship of chimpanzees to man (there’s a joke in there somewhere). He discusses an interesting article about human skeletons in the Tibetan mountains and how this discovery has enabled scientists to understand more about human adaptation and how the already present gene can adapt to different environments over time. His emphasis is his belief that man has ‘developed’ as opposed to ‘evolved’ over time.

Schroeder discusses the likes of atheist Richard Dawkins ‘origins of life’ and states that two thirds of scientists up until as recent as 50 years ago believed the bible to be scientifically incorrect. Since that time, the stretching and measuring of time has been discovered and explanations as to the 14 billion years of earth’s existence and the existence of man just 5,774 years ago was explained and justified.

Watch and listen to this dynamic character giving his talk and have your eyes opened to a subject that will provide you with answers whilst at the same time providing more for you to question. For a truly revolutionary and inspiring lecture watch just the one hour video of Gerald Schroeder in Bushey. He takes on the sceptics claiming that science and the bible are not at odds with each other.

He warns his audience of the dangers of what we read. That in fact many ‘scientific ‘magazines are catering for the mass readership and therefore ‘distorting’ true findings e.g. Newspapers change the word ‘adaptation’ to ‘evolution’ for sensationalism and sales.

For a well guided (and sometimes comical) insight in to what is written in the Tanach (bible) from the big bang to Adam. Theories explained. Schroeder goes on to prove his theories in less than an hour. How? This question and many others can be answered on the video of his lecture below.
