Science, Life, and Purpose: a Conversation with Francis Collins and Brian Greene

This is a highly recommended, fascinating, and amicable conversation between two eminent scientists from the World Science Festival in Brisbane. Francis Collins (perhaps the world’s most famous living Christian scientist) speaks to Brian Greene (perhaps the world’s most famous current populariser of science, and not a Christian). This is a conversation for believers and non-believers, and definitely one to share to those who wonder how a scientist could be a Christian.

The description reads, “Francis Collins—leader of the Human Genome Project, Director of the National Institutes of Health across three presidential administrations, and President Biden’s newly appointed Science Advisor—joins Brian Greene for a spirited and wide-ranging conversation on scientific exploration, the nature of life, and the perennial quest for purpose.”
