Dr. Robert DiSilvestro - Part 2



What might you say to the student that feels they don’t need God?

A conversation with Dr. Robert DiSilvestro

Episode Description:

In part 2 of our interview with Dr. Robert DiSilvestro, we ask about how his work in science has actually affirmed his faith in Christ, we ask what’s wrong with waiting until one is certain about having all the evidence before believing, and we ask what he might say to someone who doesn’t feel that they need God.

Dr. Robert DiSilvestro grew up on Long Island. After receiving his bachelor's degree from Purdue, Dr. DiSilvestro received his PhD in biochemistry from Texas A&M. He has spent the last 29 years as a faculty member at OSU, and now as an emeritus professor, Dr. DiSilvestro runs three start up companies based upon his research.
