Jonás De Basabe is a professor in Earth Sciences and a researcher in the Seismology department at his university in Mexico. He has been involved with COMPA (the IFES movement in Mexico) since he started as a student in 1996, and has kept in touch, staying committed to what COMPA does and acting as a supporter.
Jonás struggled with the disconnect between faith and science as a teenager where questioning one’s faith was viewed as spiritual doubt and was discouraged. He has discovered that faith answers many questions that science raises and vice versa and his hope is to bring these discussions into normal academic life to give both Christian and non-Christian students an integrated view of reality.
Here he shares how he is benefiting from being a Catalyst in the Logos and Cosmos Initiative.
