“Though it was at one time little more than an obscure scientific term, the multiverse has grown in cultural awareness in recent years. Recent scientific research hints that our universe may be part of a much bigger multiverse of imagination-staggering immensity—a prospect that has echoed in interesting ways throughout our society. From the widely successful Marvel superhero movies, which use alternate timelines and transdimensional travel as central plot devices, to the frontiers of theoretical physics and string theory, the idea of a multiverse has powerfully shaped our view of the world around us. What are we to make of this dizzying potential reality?
Dr. Deborah Haarsma, astronomer and president of BioLogos, will lead us through a fascinating tour of the universe as it is currently understood, exploring the spiritual as well as scientific implications of recent discoveries.”
This event is hosted by Pennsylvania University as part of the Perry-Collegium Initiative and it is co-presented by PRRUCS and Collegium Institute.
