Science and Faith: Are They Really in Conflict?

A Conference for Future and Current Pastors and Church Leaders
Past Event February 23, 2017 Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary - Fort Worth, TX

Sponsored by the Land Center at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Discovery Institute

According to a recent survey, more than two-thirds of atheists and more than one-third of agnostics believe “the findings of science make the existence of God less probable.” If you want to engage the growing number of religiously unaffiliated Americans, you need to understand the implications of science for a theistic worldview.

Join future and current pastors and church leaders on Thursday, February 23, 2017 for the “Science and Faith: Are They Really in Conflict?” conference at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. At this event, you will hear results from a new national survey investigating the impact of science on faith in America. You will learn from scientists about recent developments in science that actually support belief in God rather than undermine it. You will explore growing evidence that humans are unique among living things. And you will gain new tools and resources to help young people as well as adults deal with questions of science and faith.

This event will be especially helpful for seminary students, pastors, and those involved in various aspects of church leadership (elders, Sunday School teachers, home group leaders, apologetics ministry, etc.).

Speakers will include molecular biologist Douglas Axe, author of Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life is Designed; biologist Ray Bohlin , Vice President for Vision Outreach at Probe Ministries; social scientist John West, author of Darwin Day in America: How Our Politics and Culture Have Been Dehumanized in the Name of Science and Vice President of Discovery Institute; and historian of science Michael Keas at the College at Southwestern.
