Can Science Prove God? 2019

December 7, 2019 – 13:00 t/m 17:00

Would you think that it is possible to scientifically prove the existence of God? Or is there scientific evidence that shows He doesn’t exist and evolution is a reasonable explanation? Please join us to listen to Dr. Mike Houts who has a PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and currently works for NASA as a nuclear research manager who will give two lectures concerning this topic. The presentations will be in English.

He worked 11 years with Los Alamos National Laboratory serving in various positions including Team Leader for Criticality, Reactor, and Radiation Physics, Deputy Group Leader of the 70-person Nuclear Design and Risk Analysis Group, and also served as chairman of the 15th, 16th, 17th, and 25th Symposiums on Space Nuclear Power and Propulsion. In addition to his duties with Apologetics Press, he presently serves as Nuclear Research Manager at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center where he provides guidance and technical advice on research and development related to the design, development, and utilization of space nuclear power and propulsion systems. He has been the lead author on more than two dozen technical papers related to space nuclear power and propulsion, as well as additional papers related to Accelerator Transmutation of Waste, Plutonium Disposition, and other topics. He has co-authored over 100 technical papers and has received numerous distinguished performance awards, including a NASA Exceptional Service Medal, a NASA Exceptional Engineering Achievement Medal, and was selected as an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
