Cosmic Origins: The Scientific Evidence to Creation
Think for a minute of all of the questions we have about our creation. We seem to be a small part of a highly complex universe that follows a design that is just as complex as we are. Where did every particle in this vast ever-changing universe get its origin from? How can science bring us closer to our creation? How did we get here? Why does it matter? Why are we here?
Cosmic Origins Brings in the Heavy-hittersA new 49-minute film, Cosmic Origins, gathers together eight world-renown scientists to weigh in on the mysteries of our origin. Heading the group is the Founder of Magis Institute for Faith and Reason and former Gonzaga University President Fr. Robert J Spitzer. The other accomplished experts include: theoretical physicist, Lisa Randall, who is one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in 2007; Jennifer Wiseman from NASA; winners of the Templeon Prize, Michael Heller and John Polkinghorne; Arno Penzias, who discovered the background radiation from the Big Bang; Owen Gingerich from Harvard; and Stephen Barr of the University of Delaware who narrates the film.
Cosmic Origins SynopsisCosmic Origins, examines the earth-centered theories of Copernicus, Galileo, and Aristotle through to modern astronomy and cosmology with Dr. Edwin Hubble and Fr. George LeMaitre, who introduced the Big Bang theory. In addition to the Big Bang, the film examines other theories such as “the bouncing universe” and “multiverse” theories. The film investigates the probabilities of a random universe and its mathematical nature. “When something isn’t random we associate it with a purpose,” states Dr. Penzias.
Today more than ever, science has given more evidence that points to a beginning of the universe, which points to a metaphysical creation theory. Cosmic Origins makes a case that the physical universe could not create itself from nothingness. One of the scientists admits, “There are limits to the scientific method, but the limits to this method do not coincide with the limits of the universe.”
Cosmic Origins Screenings and ReleasePre-release screenings are now available for parishes, educational leaders, and organizations only. However, youth are encouraged to view the film when the movie is released by Ignatius Press in the fall 2012. The pre-screening package includes a license to show Cosmic Origins for a full year. The packages are available here.
Screenings are already getting positive reviews. After a leadership screening, Zack Duckett of Pittsboro, Indiana says the film is, “Very interesting and in-depth.” While Mike DiPietro in Philadelphia adds that Cosmic Origins is “clear and well-balanced. Right on the money. Very well-done.”
