Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture is pleased to announce a co-sponsored event taking place in Krakow, Poland featuring Senior Fellows Günter Bechly, Michael Behe, Richard Sternberg, and Guillermo Gonzalez among other speakers. Read below for a description from the conference organizers.
The Polish Senate has declared 2023 the year of Nicolaus Copernicus, one of the most famous astronomers of all time. Copernicus, like other founders of modern science such as Isaac Newton and Johannes Kepler, was a man of faith and repeatedly emphasised that scientific observation of the world leads to a deeper knowledge of its Creator and Author. For them, the biblical Christian faith was not an obstacle to research and groundbreaking discoveries, but rather an inspiration for a deeper knowledge of nature, since in their optics nature is a reflection of the divine plan and wisdom of the Creator.
The aim of the conference is to renew that spirit of harmony between faith and science which once constituted the natural milieu for the development of modern natural science. We hope that our participants will be strengthened in their conviction that even today, in the age of advanced science, it is possible to profess faith in God the Creator courageously, reasonably, and without complexes.
** Please note that this event is for in-person attendance only. There will be no livestream access.
