Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture is co-sponsoring the 2nd Annual European Conference on Intelligent Design with TDI Brasil, Discovery Mackenzie, and Fundation Dignidad Y Liberdad. In its first year, this event was initially planned in Faro, Portugal. After pushback from local activists, it was moved to Porto, Portugal and — after further pushback — to its ultimate location in Leon, Spain. The opposition, which claimed that the conference was not truly of a scientific nature, served only to increase interest from local students and the community. In the end, a charter bus was provided to bring students from Portugal to Spain — traveling 2,000 km round-trip to reach the event. You can read the full story here. After a great turnout, the organizers are excited

According to a nationwide survey, more than two-thirds of atheists and one-third of agnostics believe that “the findings of science make the existence of God less probable,” while nearly half of self-identified theists believe “the findings of science are neutral with regard to the existence of God.” But what if there is another option? What if the discoveries of science actually lend support to belief in God? Tackle this question head-on at the upcoming Dallas Conference on Science and Faith 2020 on January 25. Held on the campus of Denton Bible Church, the conference will explore exciting scientific discoveries about the origin of the universe, the origin of life, and the development of biological complexity, as well as critique the scientific and cultural impact of
