Religion affects everything in our lives from the nature of reality, what we believe to be true, to moral and ethical behaviors. There is great value in the philosophical debate of the frontiers of science as well as in deepening our understanding of the impact our religious beliefs have on our day to day lives. For many people however, the realms of the spiritual and the scientific never meet or work together in practical application. For the most part, these two things are generally separated and one is not considered conducive of the other meaning that one does not lead to greater insights of the other. The investments that we put into philosophy and fundamental science is not just about offering ways to have a greater understanding of science and technology, but also to leading us to greater spiritual insights that have practical applications for our lives. This is important as we seek to apply God’s Word (the Bible) to our lives which has far reaching influence upon our friends, our family, and even the world. The greater insight into the scientific research may also lead us to a greater understanding of who we are as God’s people.

This new teaching series “Science and Spirituality” on the MATSATI.COM Teaching Ministry looks at the latest advances in cutting edge research in the scientific literature coupled to the philosophical implications of what it means to walk with God according to His ways!

Dr. Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned. The studies developed for MATSATI.COM are freely to be used by everyone, to God be the Glory!
