Dallas Conference on Science and Faith
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 on January 18-19, 2019. Held on the campus of Park Cities Baptist Church, the conference will explore exciting scientific discoveries about the origin and fine-tuning of the universe, the origin of the first life, and the origin and development of complex life. The conference opens on Friday evening (7:30-9:00 pm) with a Socrates in the City interview between Eric Metaxas and Stephen Meyer, and continues on Saturday (8:45 am-4:15 pm) with a full day of sessions and additional speakers.
Speakers will include Eric Metaxas, national talk show host and author of the book Miracles; Dr. Stephen Meyer, author of the New York Times-bestseller Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design; Dr. Jay Richards, co-author of The Privileged Planet; and Dr. James Tour, Professor of Chemistry at Rice University.
