Science and Faith: Friends or Foes?October 12, 2012 - October 13, 2012 - FREE for Students
Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis
Are science and faith compatible? Does biology support or undercut human uniqueness? Is there evidence that life and the universe were intelligently designed? Explore these questions and more at this special two-day conference to be held October 12-13, 2012 on the campus of Covenant Seminary in St. Louis.
Featured speakers include Dr. Jay Richards, co-author of The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos Is Designed For Discovery and editor of God and Evolution: Protestants, Catholics, and Jews Explore Darwin’s Challenge to Faith; Dr. Ann Gauger, senior research biologist at the Biologic Institute and co-author of the new book Science and Human Origins; Dr. C. John Collins, Professor of Old Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary and author of Science and Faith: Friends or Foes? and Did Adam and Eve Really Exist?; Dr. Paul Nelson, Adjunct Professor of Science and Religion at Biola University and featured science expert in documentaries such as Metamorphosis and Unlocking the Mystery of Life; and Dr. John West, author of Darwin Day in America and editor of The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society.
Sessions will explore the compatibility of science and faith; the impact of Darwinian evolution on ethics, society, and theology; debates over human origins and human uniqueness; the scientific evidence for intelligent design in cosmology and biology; and C.S. Lewis’s prophetic insights into both the benefits and limits of modern science.
The conference starts Friday night and concludes Saturday evening with the premiere of The Magician’s Twin, a new documentary about C.S. Lewis’s views on science and scientism. The screening will be followed by discussion and Q and A with the contributors to a new book of the same name.
