Are We Slaves to Our Genes?
Trinity International University, Deerfield IL
Trinity International University

This lecture will discuss how human genetic variation relates to behavioral variation, sometimes leading to the idea that our lives represent a competition between genetic and environmental influences in which the genes invariably win. However, contemporary developmental biology points to a more integrated view of human personhood. This brings the science into a natural conversation with theology via the ancient idea of humankind made in the image of God. This powerful framework for understanding human identity guarantees the value of each individual irrespective of their genetic endowment and highlights the moral responsibilities placed upon humankind, involving genuine choice. Far from being slaves to our genes, it is our human DNA that contributes so powerfully to the human development that leads to genuine free will.

Antimatter – Dr. Gerald Gabrielse, Northwestern University
Fermilab, Batavia IL
FERMILAB

Professor Gabrielse’s group probes the predictions, symmetries and proposed extensions to the standard model with exquisite sensitivity, using small-scale apparatus and methods that derive sensitivity from precision rather than energy. His electron and positron magnetic moment measurements with a single trapped particle (the most accurate measurments of propertes of elementary particles) test the standard model’s most precise prediction.
