I’m glad you clicked on my About link.

My name is Darren Williams, and I am a Physical Chemistry Professor at Sam Houston State University. You may connect with me on any of these platforms:

One of the benefits of going to SHSU is the ability to get to know your professors. For more information on the classes I teach check out my students page:

Some international students have remarked that the University System in the USA is much more informal than they are used to in their home country. Yes, but this depends upon the professor. I am very open and informal, so come by my office, send me messages, and feel free to ask me anything. WELCOME TO SAM!

I am also very involved in Rotary International. You may have found my page through the Rotary Club of Huntsville Facebook Page. Our motto is Service Above Self! To see how we embody this motto visit http://www.huntsvillerotary.org/

I am passionate about PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY! You may not know what that is. But you know about pressure, temperature, volume, energy, light, solids, liquids, gases, polymers, plastics, glasses, etc. Physical chemistry is the study of the mathematics and theories of all this and more. That is why my online name is pchem4all, and my science blog is http://pchem4all.com.

Perhaps the most unexpected passion of mine is the logical defense of my Christian convictions. The most common question I receive is “How do you reconcile the conflict between science and religion?” This is one of the topics discussed on the SHSU Chapter Blog of Ratio Christi http://ratiochristi.org/shsu. – a student organization focused on Christian Apologetics, and on my personal apologetics blog (http://apologetics4all.com) where I discuss what I believe and why I believe it.

Last but not least, I am passionate about STUDENTS. It is for this reason that I am Faculty Advisor for three student groups – the J C Stallings Chemical Society (which is affiliated nationally with both the American Chemical Society http://www.acs.org/content/acs/en.html and the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering http://www.sampe.org/ ), the SHSU Chapter of Ratio Christi (which is affiliated nationally with Ratio Christi – a Christian Apologetics organization http://ratiochristi.org/ ), and the Lutheran Student Fellowship (which is affiliated with Faith Lutheran Church and School http://www.faithhuntsville.org/ and is active intermittently whenever a critical mass of Lutheran students wish to organize). I also work with Joe Agins who is the Advisor for the Rotaract club (which is affiliated nationally with Rotary International https://www.rotary.org/en/rotaract).

What have I missed? Did this spark a question in your mind? If so, comment below while it is fresh.

Even though I reference my campus involvement on this blog, the opinions expressed on this blog are my own and do not reflect the views of Sam Houston State University.

    Good morning, Darren.

    I am a friend of Patsy Wuensche and a lifelong friend of Dick Wuensche who I suspect at this very moment is discussing and expounding with the Trinity about spiritual and model railroad issues.

    Patsy introduced me to you because of my current scholastic interest in apologetics at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. I just wanted to thank and bless you and your work at SHSU. I will follow your apologetics commentaries for my own edification.

    More important to me is your presence at Sam Houston. It is an encouragement to me, and surely to your students, as I look at the current secular ignorance and rejection of God in our country’s educational institutions. Besides, I am an engineer who loves mathematics and the physical world interactions. Chemistry is not in my wheelhouse, however.

    Blessings on your work and life, Darren,
    Duane Davis, Twin Cities, Minnesota

    • Hi Duane. It’s great to connect with you. Patsy told me that she share my blog with you. Thanks for checking out and for your encouragement.

      I can’t carve much time out of my schedule to post very often, so it is a spotty coverage of apologetics topics.

      My science blog is pchem4all, an as an engineer, you may find some fun things over there, too.

      I look forward to our future correspondence.
