Renowned author of Darwin’s Black Box (1996) and Edge of Evolution (2007), professor and biochemist Dr. Michael Behe will be presenting the message of his latest book — Darwin Devolves — at these two locations in Central Colorado next month. Mark your calendars, and spread the word! Twenty years after publishing Darwin’s Black Box, Behe shows that new scientific discoveries point to a stunning fact: Darwin’s mechanism works by a process of devolution, not evolution. On the surface, evolution can help make something look and act differently, but it doesn’t have the ability to build or create anything at the genetic level. Critically analyzing the latest research, Behe gives a sweeping tour of how modern theories of evolution fall short and how the devolving nature of

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.

Biola University
La Mirada, CA
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 to the credibility of intelligent design. In this course, Dr. Meyer will explore three of his important publications that argue not only against the scientific naturalist worldview, but also in favor of intelligent design. The course will draw upon his groundbreaking work in Signature in the Cell, Darwin’s Doubt, and The Return of the God Hypothesis

Orange County First Assembly of God

After decades of molecular biology research, Dr. Douglas Axe’s stunning contributions to the origins debate have been made accessible to general audiences through his book and presentation Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition that Life is Designed. Named a book of the year by WORLD magazine, Dr. Axe’s excellent visuals show the profound implications of his classic article in the Journal of Molecular Biology — an experiment which also confirms Sir Fred Holye’s fantastically small probability of life arising by chance. Defend your confidence that life is designed! During interactive Q&A, ask your toughest questions for Dr. Axe! Bring a friend. Everyone is welcome!

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.

We are pleased to announce the Conference on Engineering in Living Systems (CELS 2020) to be held in spring 2020 at Biola University. CELS 2020 brings together leading engineers and biologists in order to: (1) apply engineering principles to better understand biological systems, (2) craft a design-based theoretical framework that explains and predicts the behaviors of living systems, and (3) develop research programs that demonstrate the engineering principles at work in living systems. The conference will follow a workshop-like format of discussion-oriented sessions in a collegial setting, with a goal of fostering active participation and establishing concrete results and action items. Topics include the following: Intersection of Biology and Engineering — the impacts of

The CSC Seminar on Intelligent Design in the Natural Sciences will prepare students to make research contributions advancing the growing science of intelligent design (ID). The seminar will explore cutting-edge ID work in fields such as molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology, developmental biology, paleontology, computational biology, ID-theoretic mathematics, cosmology, physics, and the history and philosophy of science. The seminar will include presentations on the application of intelligent design to laboratory research as well as frank treatment of the academic realities that ID researchers confront in graduate school and beyond, and strategies for dealing with them. Although the primary focus of the seminar is science, there also will be discussion of the worldview
