The Origins of the Universe and Life

December 12 @ 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm


The Origins of the Universe and Life

With Special Guest and Author of The Genesis Code, Daniel Friedmann

Join us for this thought provoking talk examining the relationship between scientific theory and biblical teachings.

Every word in the 6 day Genesis creation account describes the origins of the universe and life on earth, and every discovery and observation by science leads to understanding of when and how the universe came to be, often in seeming contradiction to Genesis.  They can’t both be right, or can they?  We will compare what the Genesis creation account says happened and when it happened with the latest scientific discoveries relating to the development of the universe and the appearance of life on earth. We will then discuss how it all happened.

Daniel Friedmann, BIO

Daniel Friedmann was CEO of MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates, “Canada’s largest space systems company” and the world’s largest  commercial communications satellite manufacturer, for 20 years, until May 2016.  He is a professional engineer and holds a master’s in engineering physics. He has worked for 30 years in the space industry, including being involved with NASA other major space agencies and participating on key projects from the Hubble space telescope to Mars missions. Friedmann has published papers on space industry topics and cosmology, as well as, on the correlation between Biblical teachings and scientific theory.

His work on reconciling the biblical account with scientific observation, using his biblical clock formula, has been reported in the 2012 ideacity conference, National Post, Toronto Star, the David Berner Show and Off Planet Radio and Jewish Pride Radio talk shows. He has also spoken widely on his work to the general public, in schools and at various religious and spiritual gatherings.

In 2011, he published his first book, The Genesis One Code which demonstrates an alignment between key events and times as described in the creation narrative in the book of Genesis with those derived from scientific theory and observation.

The Genesis One Code won the Readers’ Favorite 2013 International Book Award, was a Finalist in the 2013 National Indie Excellence Awards, and has been translated into Spanish.

In 2013, he published The Broken Gift: Harmonizing the Biblical and scientific accounts of human origins, to compare the appearance of humans in the book of Genesis with the fossil record and genetic studies.

Friedmann was selected as a 2015/2016 Brendan Wood TopGun CEO in Canada for Technology, Media and Telecommunications. 

In 2016, Friedmann was one of the first recipients of a Dean’s Medal of Distinction from the University of British Columbia, Faculty of Applied Science, in recognition of his superb achievements.

Presentation Reviews:

“Friedmann makes a compelling case to reconcile the account of Genesis with the latest findings of modern science.  He’s knowledgeable and creative presentation manages to remain faithful to both a classical reading of Genesis and scientific observations of our universe.  His convincing arguments will bolster your faith in both religion and science and their respective accounts for the origins of the universe.”

“The room was mesmerized.  A truly magnificent and gifted speaker.  Material was presented in a clear, concise and orderly manner. “

Genesis One Code Book Reviews:

“Fantastic book!  I’ve never been entirely satisfied with the answers teaches (I go to a religious high school) have given me to the vital questions like, “How old is the universe?” and “Can scientists really be totally wrong?”.  The Genesis One Code what I believe is the truth.  It gives those who are more scientifically knowledgeable a clear explanation of the Biblical creation that fits perfectly with our observations of the universe.”
Daniel Friedmann shares his explanation of our origins in both science and religious texts – reconciling these disciplines to point towards the single truth “God created…” and science supports!  The book will inspire the reader.  It is a winning work, a great read filled with wisdom, that will result in animated discussions and personal moments of reflection and connection.  A must read for any parent struggling to answer the “how” questions when science meets the creation account in Genesis.”
