A professor of science with an interest in the Bible has visited a Suffolk community group to discuss whether intelligent people could still believe in miracles.

FramSoc, a public society associated with Framlingham College, welcomed Sir Colin Humphreys to lead the debate at its latest meeting. “It was a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable evening, generating many questions at the end for Sir Colin,” said a spokesman for the event.

“It has also sparked a lot of discussion within the college since.”

Sir Colin, a professor of materials science at the University of Cambridge, cited several examples of miracles from the Bible including the Israelites crossing the River Jordan and Moses obtaining water from a rock.

He argued these events “do not break natural laws” and therefore concluded it was possible for scientists to believe in miracles without compromising their science.
