Please join us on Thursday, June 20 for a captivating discussion on the current state of Middle East geopolitics, as Israel prepares for a new election, and how it will affect the United States with Discovery Senior Fellow and foreign policy expert John Wohlstetter. President Trump's first year saw the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Six-Day War--and also of the U.S.-Israel alliance. His second saw the 70th anniversary of Israel's 1948 birth as a Jewish state, and the 25th anniversary of the 1993 Oslo Accords. In his third year President Trump formally recognized Israel's 1981 annexation of the Golan Heights. There may be some changes afoot in the Middle East. As Sunni states in the region ally against Iran, they have also become increasingly intertwined in the Israeli economy; the

While Stephen Colbert has called Michael J. Behe the “Father of Intelligent Design,” Behe’s arguments have been called “close to heretical” by the New York Times Book Review, and Richard Dawkins has publicly taken him to task for his “maverick” views. Wherever he goes, Behe makes waves, but has remained singularly focused on doing rigorous scientific analysis that points to controversial but incredible results that other scientists won’t touch.

Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture is co-sponsoring the 2nd Annual European Conference on Intelligent Design with TDI Brasil, Discovery Mackenzie, and Fundation Dignidad Y Liberdad. In its first year, this event was initially planned in Faro, Portugal. After pushback from local activists, it was moved to Porto, Portugal and — after further pushback — to its ultimate location in Leon, Spain. The opposition, which claimed that the conference was not truly of a scientific nature, served only to increase interest from local students and the community. In the end, a charter bus was provided to bring students from Portugal to Spain — traveling 2,000 km round-trip to reach the event. You can read the full story here. After a great turnout, the organizers are excited

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 2020 on January 25. Held on the campus of Denton Bible Church, the conference will explore exciting scientific discoveries about the origin of the universe, the origin of life, and the development of biological complexity, as well as critique the scientific and cultural impact of
