CBC Interview with geneticist Francis Collins
Dr. Francis Collins lives in both the scientific and the religious worlds. He’s a leading geneticist; in fact, he was the head of the Human Genome Project. The project mapped the code of DNA—which Collins called the “first glimpse of our own instruction book, previously known only to God”. He is also a believer: not just in God—but in a God who hears prayers, who cares about souls—and who wants nothing more than a relationship with each one of us. Mary Hynes talks with Francis Collins about his journey from atheism to belief.
Dr. Francis Collins’ book is called The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief. It’s published by Free Press.
