An 11-year-old boy genius, who on Saturday graduated from St. Petersburg College in Florida just two years after finishing high school, said he wants to become an astrophysicist and prove that God exists.
“I want to prove that God does exist through science — so that the world can know,” William Maillis, who received an associate in arts degree, told The Tampa Bay Times.
He argued that atheism and some parts of science rely on faith just as much as religion does. He suggested that it is more likely that a higher power created the universe than a random event.
“Science and religion are no different,” William said. “Science is a tool for explaining the world. Science doesn’t disprove God.”
His father serves as the presiding priest at Saints Raphael, Nicholas & Irene Hellenic Orthodox Church in Palm Harbor.
William began speaking in complete sentences by seven months, learned addition and subtraction by age two, and was declared a genius at age five.
He told WTFS he believes his gifts are divinely inspired.
“Everybody has gifts from God. I was gifted with knowledge and science and history,” William said.
