Former Technical Expert for the United Nations Debates the Existence of God From a Physicist's Point Of View
at SUNY Rockland Community College
Admission is free and open to the public
Suffern, NY - A Columbia University educated doctor of physics will discuss the debate over the existence of God from a physicist’s point of view at SUNY Rockland Community College.
"Frontiers of Physics: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), Nanotechnology, Aliens, and God," presented by Dr. Victor Coronel, is the fourth lecture in the Science Lecture Series and will be on Thursday, February 28, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m., in the Technology Center, Room 8180 (Ellipse) on main campus in Suffern. Admission is free and open to the public.
The technological success that physicists have brought to the world have emboldened them, and has made them look, and get funding for, the search for Intelligent Life in the Universe, as well as, debate the existence of God. Coming a long way from “Pascal’s Wager” and Paul Davis’ “God and the New Physics,” we now have the debate over the existence of God from the physicists’ point of view and publications that are passionate about God’s existence or lack thereof.
Speaker Dr. Victor Coronel, Professor, Science, got his B. Sc. in Physics from Haverford College and both his M. Sc. in Physics and Materials Science as well as his Ph. D. in Materials Science, from Columbia University. He has taught at Manhattan College, Penn State, and Baruch College at CUNY. He has served as Technical Expert for the United Nations in the area of Medical Image Processing and Digital signal Processing. His current interest is the Spectral Analysis of Musical Instruments in the Inca and Pre-Inca America.
