Dallas Conference on Science & Faith

How has Christianity contributed to the rise of modern science? What do the latest scientific discoveries tell us about the existence of God? Can human engineering help us better understand the machinery of life? Explore these questions, and more, at Discovery Institute’s 4th-annual Dallas Conference on Science & Faith on January 22.

Whether you join us in person in the Dallas area, or join online via livestream, you’ll hear from speakers like Stephen Meyer, author of Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries That Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe, Eric Hedin, author of Canceled Science: Scientific Discoveries Some Atheists Don’t Want You to See, and Casey Luskin, co-editor of The Comprehensive Guide to Science & Faith, among others. For a full list of speakers, keep scrolling.

But he is also a tech entrepreneur who builds educational software and websites, exploring how education can help to advance human freedom with the aid of technology.

Eric Hedin

Fellow, Center for Science and Culture
Eric Hedin earned his doctorate in physics from the University of Washington and conducted post-doctoral research at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden in experimental plasma physics. He has taught physics and astronomy at Taylor University and Ball State University (BSU) in Indiana, and at Biola University in Southern California. He served as professor of physics at Biola University in California, and chaired the department of chemistry, physics, and engineering at Biola from 2019-2021. Since the fall of 2021, Dr. Hedin has taught physics part-time with Indiana Wesleyan University and speaks regularly at universities around the country with God’s Not Dead Events, led by Dr. Rice Broocks. Dr. Hedin is also an emeritus professor of physics and astronomy at Ball State University in Indiana.

Casey Luskin
