2019
Covenant Fellowship Church
Philadelphia, PA
Given enough time, can bacteria mutate into insects by chance? Can random mutations account for the existence of butterflies and whales and platypuses? What about the origin of the universe or the origin of man's ability to reason? Come and hear scientists and scholars discuss the limitations of chance and the abundant testimonies to design, as they come to realization from physics to proteins.

Ideas have consequences, and Charles Darwin’s idea that life developed through an unguided material process has had momentous consequences for both human thought and public policy. In this talk, award-winning author and filmmaker John G. West will discuss how Darwinian biology played a pivotal role in the development of eugenics, scientific racism, abortion, and other anti-life practices during the past century-and-a-half. He will also discuss current efforts to suppress the Darwinian roots of the devaluation of life--and why telling the true history of Darwinian social policy matters. When April 9, 2019, 7:00 PM Where Greenville ARP Church741 Cleveland St., Greenville, SC 29601 For questions, contact Noel Brownlee

Science is one of one humanity’s crowning achievements, the fruit of human rationality and creativity. Yet — ironically — science is increasingly being misused to devalue human life and deny human dignity. Appealing to science in general and Darwinian biology in particular, strident voices now assert that humans are no more than animals, that morality is an “illusion,” and that our very longing for the transcendent is little more than a fairy tale. Join award-winning author and filmmaker John G. West as he explores some of the chilling ways science is being hijacked today to fuel the devaluation of life — and how new developments in the sciences can help us respond with hope rather than fear. This event is part of the Coffee and Questions series

Do you ever have the feeling that science conflicts with faith? Well, you are not alone. 59% of American adults believe "science and religion are often in conflict". But what if there is another perspective? What if the discoveries of science in fact support the existence of and belief in God?
