Following the science…to belief in God
Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J. believes in God, the soul, and an afterlife. This is not surprising, as the Jesuit priest is a well-known defender of the precepts of the Catholic faith in his books, lectures, and numerous media appearances. But Fr. Spitzer holds that these beliefs are well-founded scientifically, and has written a book presenting his evidence.
In this episode, host Andrew Petiprin speaks with Fr. Spitzer about the most up-to-date scientific evidence for the existence of God and for the afterlife, which Spitzer documents in his new book “Science at the Doorstep to God.” While many point to “science” as their reason for rejecting belief in a Creator, Fr. Spitzer argues that this only demonstrates an ignorance of the scientific evidence, and an inability to recognize how faith and reason can be harmonized in an earnest pursuit of truth.
