Jim Gates is Professor & Director of the Center for String & Particle Theory at the University of Maryland. He also recently received the National Medal of Science from President Obama. We consider Jim a Science/Faith Healer because he often speaks publicly about how human beings don't need science or faith, but that, in fact, we need both.
