Christian and scientist
This is a video of a personal testimony by Professor Chris Shaw in Ballymena Elim Pentecostal Church.
Dr Shaw is Professor in Drug Discovery within the School of Pharmacy. Prof. Shaw's exciting work involves the discovery and characterisation of biologically active agents within nature, most notably from amphibian venoms that are harvested worldwide. High-throughput molecular technologies involving de novo peptide sequencing, "shotgun" cDNA cloning and pharmacological screening is directed towards the functional genomic understanding of peptidomes, thus allowing rapid acquisition of structural data and the generation of peptide molecular libraries for novel drug leads. http://www.qub.ac.uk/schools/SchoolofPharmacy/Staff/AcademicStaff/ProfessorCShaw/
He was speaking in Ballymena last Sunday night and his testimony is well worth watching, especially in an age when we are faced with an increasingly aggressive and abrasive atheism. Militant atheists are keen to portray evangelical Christians as unlearned and uneducated folk but this testimony is a clear rebuttal of such atheistic propaganda.
In this context his references to the infamous Richard Dawkins are especially interesting.
