Hugh Ross launched his career at age seven when he went to the library to find out why stars are hot. Physics and astronomy captured his curiosity and never let go. At age seventeen he was the youngest person ever to serve as director of observations for Vancouver's Royal Astronomical Society. With the help of a provincial scholarship and a National Research Council (NRC) fellowship, he completed his undergraduate degree in physics and graduate degrees in astronomy. The NRC also sent him to the United States for postdoctoral studies.
At Caltech he taught courses and researched quasi-stellar objects, or quasars, some of the most distant and ancient objects in the universe. Today he directs the efforts of Reasons to Believe, an institute founded to bring to the foreground the relationship between scientific discoveries and the Bible.
Astronomer and physicist, Dr. Hugh Ross, researched quasi-stellar objects, or "quasars," while at Caltech. Subsequently, he sought out scientific evidence and correlations for the 66 books of the Bible. Known for her work with angels, ascension, and the wisdom of Atlantis, author Diana Cooper talked in the first hour about the transition to a "Golden Age" in 2032. ... More »Host: George Noory
In a special Christmas Eve edition of Coast to Coast AM, George Noory spoke with four different guests for one hour each. First up was author and NDE expert Dannion Brinkley, whose new book Secrets of the Light is just out. He offered some of his predictions, stemming from visions he had in 1976: In the next year and a half, beings from another dimension will communicate via electronic sources such as digital TV about the world we think of as heaven. Solar flares in 2010 will enhance this effect. We'll also see some amazing advances in medicine. Astronomer Hugh Ross talked about his new book Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, which integrates observations about the cosmos with biblical theology. The idea of a multiverse is not anti-Christian in principle, as God has created a different realm for the angels that is independent of this universe, he said. Ross noted that all the planets in our solar system play a role in life on Earth. For instance, Jupiter acts as a gravitational s ... More »Host: George Noory

"Planet Earth is almost certainly alone for having [intelligent] life," in our universe, asserted Hugh Ross (reasons.org) a Christian astronomer who appeared on Tuesday's program. Overturning the Copernican way of thought, Ross put forth the "anthropic principal," which states that the universe appears designed for the sake of human life. He believes that conditions for man's existence are only possible because the parameters for life, such as the mass density of the universe, are very carefully tuned for our planet. Ross also contends that observers of UFOs are in some way involved with the occult (or close to someone who is), and that the high number of sightings in such locations as France, North Brazil, Russia and North Africa are correlated with a "heavy degree of occult activity within the population." Because some of these craft have been observed performing physics defying stunts such as right turns at high speeds, this is evidence they hail from a spiritual or non-physic ...
