Darwin Devolves: The Failure of Chance
2019 Westminster Conference on Science and Faith
The Center for Science and Culture, in partnership with the Westminster Theological Seminary, is excited to announce the 2019 Westminster Conference on Science and Faith.
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.

You will hear from biochemist Michael Behe, author of Darwin’s Black Box and – released just this year – Darwin Devolves; theologian Vern Poythress, author of Redeeming Science; historian of science Mike Keas, author of Unbelievable; theologian Scott Oliphint, author of Reasons for Faith; assistant professor of biology Ransom Poythress, author of Richard Dawkins; social scientist John West, editor of The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society; physicist Brian Miller, assistant professor of systematic theology and apologetics Carlton Wynne, and biologist Ann Gauger, co-author of Science and Human Origins.
This year, for the first time ever, the conference will feature a special youth track, designed especially for junior high and high school students. In addition to the plenary and breakout sessions for all ages, these additional breakouts will cover topics of particular interest to the youth. Attendees in elementary grades or younger, or in need of special assistance, are welcome to join but should be accompanied by an adult.
