Dr. Roemer celebrates more than 20 years as an independent theologian, writing and lecturing on the gaps and overlaps between science and spirituality. He discovered his passion for theology while studying physics at Fordham University, at which he enrolled in a class taught by seminal metaphysician and philosopher Fr. W. Norris Clarke. Impressed by his clarity and rationality, he grew to consider him as a major influence, and the class inspired him to begin his own lines of spiritual inquiry. After earning a Bachelor of Science in physics at Fordham University, Dr. Roemer continued his studies at New York University, completing doctoral coursework in physics before obtaining a Doctor of Philosophy in 1971.
Initially, Dr. Roemer hoped to utilize his scientific background to make a mark on the business world, and he dedicated much of the 1970s as the manager of radiation therapy products for Litton Medical Systems. In 1977, he accepted a position as a product specialist for Siemens Corporation while concurrently enrolled in the Lubin School of Business at Pace University, from which he would accrue a Master of Business Administration in 1980. In 1983, Dr. Roemer departed from Siemens Corporation and the corporate world to become a high school science teacher.
For the nearly 15 years, Dr. Roemer excelled in teaching physics and general science curriculum to high school students at public and parochial schools throughout New York, concluding his career at Edward R. Murrow High School in 1998. Since his retirement from teaching, he has devoted his attention to his fundamental theology practice, and he maintains several websites cataloguing his work. Approaching Catholic theology from the perspective of a trained scientist, he has covered such diverse topics as a scientific argument for the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin and unique theories about the existence of God and the proof of an afterlife. His work has appeared in numerous professional journals. On January 18, 2018, Dr. Roemer gave oral argument to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit about his First Amendment Lawsuit against Columbia University for the manner in which Columbia University rejected his offer to give a lecture/lesson on God’s existence (case no. 17-818, David Roemer, Plaintiff-Appellant v. Attorney Grievance Committee; Jane E. Booth; Lee C. Bollinger, Defendants-Appellees) When he is not writing, Dr. Roemer enjoys conducting independent research, watching films, and can be found reading anything from scientific journals to the newest fiction in search of new concepts for analysis.
