How did we get here?
How did everything get here – our planet, our solar system … our universe?
Physics provides the fundamental suggestion of a beginning and fine-tuning of the universe. When the complementary nature of these insights is seen, it provides compelling evidence for a transcendent, intelligent Creator.
Cosmic Origins features eight world-class scientists talking about modern physics and God.
The group includes former Gonzaga University President Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, Founder and President of the Magis Institute for Faith and Reason; Nobel Laureate Arno Penzias (who discovered the background radiation from the Big Bang); Templeton Prize winners John Polkinghorne (Cambridge) and Michael Heller (Vatican Observatory); Owen Gingerich (Harvard); Lisa Randall (Harvard); Jennifer Wiseman (NASA); and the film is narrated by Stephen Barr (University of Delaware).
Cosmic Origins explains what we know about the beginning and nature of the universe, as well as its transcendent implications in clear, easy-to-understand terms. The 49-minute film weaves together a compelling narrative from academics and credentialed scientists pointing toward a very Catholic understanding of how the universe came to exist.
