Francis Collins, the founder of BioLogos, needs no introduction around here, of course. Here is some info on Brian Greene:

Brian Greene is a professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, where he also serves as the director of Columbia’s Center for Theoretical Physics. Greene is recognized for a number of groundbreaking discoveries in his field of superstring theory, including the co-discovery of mirror symmetry and the discovery of spatial topology change. His books— *The Elegant Universe, The Fabric of the Cosmos, The Hidden Reality, and Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter, and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe* —have collectively spent over 67 weeks on *The New York Times* bestseller list, and were the basis of two award-winning NOVA mini-series, which he hosted. In 2008, Greene co-founded the World Science Festival, where he serves as Chairman of the Board. His latest book, *Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter, and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe,* was released in 2020.

@MarkD I think Greene’s outlook would resonate with you.
