Michael Behe on Viruses, COVID-19, and Evolution

In this online Zoom webinar, Dr. Behe will review the biochemistry of viruses in general and COVID-19 in particular. He will use these topical examples to illustrate a fundamental principle: Darwinian and other unintelligent evolutionary mechanisms can change life marginally, in ways that are medically important, yet they cannot explain life’s complex structure. Rather, the elegant molecular structures of life Read More ›

Design & Designer: The Convergence of Science & Theology

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. Read More ›

The Return of the God Hypothesis

Join us at Biola University for a weekend seminar with Dr. Stephen Meyer, director of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture. As you may well know, the scientific naturalist worldview still dominates the natural sciences, as well as philosophy and many other disciplines, in addition to other aspects of everyday life. However, several influential works have helped give rise Read More ›

Grand Canyon University Conference on Faith and Science

Attend the Conference on Faith and Science (COFAS 2020) at Grand Canyon University for a two-day exploration of science stewardship and how it glorifies God. Discover more about our Creator through the lens of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Among other sessions, Dr. Stephen Meyer will discuss Is God’s Directing Hand Detectable in Nature? with Professor Jeff Hardin from Read More ›

Dallas Conference on Science and Faith 2020

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 the discoveries of science actually lend support to belief in God? Tackle this question head-on at the Dallas Conference on Science and Faith. Read More ›
