How Biology Lost Awe, and How to Get It Back

A Lecture with Douglas Axe Hosted by the Science & Culture Network Chapter in Southern California

The Southern California Chapter of the Science & Culture Network is hosting an in-person event with Dr. Douglas Axe on the magnificence of life. Read below for a brief word provided by the chapter. If this interests you, be sure to register via Eventbrite by clicking the button to the right.


Psychologists have observed that, regardless of upbringing, young children intuit that life was made by a god-like designer. Many educators think it is their duty to replace that natural view with the Darwinian alternative. They never fully succeed, but even partial success seriously undermines our view of ourselves. At this special event, Dr. Axe will share highlights from a course he teaches at Biola University that aims to restore a high view of life. He will give a glimpse of one of the projects his research team is working on.

Speaker

Douglas Axe

Maxwell Professor of Molecular Biology at Biola University
Douglas Axe is the Maxwell Professor of Molecular Biology at Biola University, the founding Director of Biologic Institute, the founding Editor of BIO-Complexity, and the author of Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed. After completing his PhD at Caltech, he held postdoctoral and research scientist positions at the University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Medical Research Council Centre. His research, which examines the functional and structural constraints on the evolution of proteins and protein systems, has been featured in many scientific journals, including the Journal of Molecular Biology, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, BIO-Complexity, and Nature, and in such books as Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt by Stephen Meyer and Life’s Solution by Simon Conway Morris.
