Inaugural “Happy Thinking Hour” Discusses Science and Faith

MIT Professor Ian Hutchinson speaks as RoseAnn Lovell looks on.

Long awaited excitement built to a refined crescendo of animated conversations around science and faith as a highly-engaged crowd of nearly 200 registered guests gathered at new non-profit Veritas et Vino’s (V2) inaugural “Happy Thinking Hour. This South Florida launch was held at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on January 11. V2 is the brainchild of well-known Rose Ann Lovell, whose family has generously impacted the community for generations.

Registered guests at Veritas et Vino events are given the rare opportunity to meet, hear and personally engage with world-renowned speakers, including Nobel prize nominees, while enjoying very good wine, delicious hors d’oeuvres, luscious desserts and live chamber music.

At this forum-styled event, guests mingled, then sat for a chat by MIT Prof. Ian Hutchinson, on his new book, “Can a Scientist believe in miracles?” Robust Q & A – a signature of V2 events – was lively, the conversation among guests was stimulating, the mood refined, energy animated and cordial.

Veritas et Vino will offer its next event on February 8 with Dr. Henry “Fritz” Schaefer, one of the most quoted scientists in the world and a multiple nominee for the Nobel Prize in Chemistry (U.S. News and World Report). Register at
