According to a recent survey, more than 7 in 10 atheists and nearly 4 in 10 agnostics agree with evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins that the universe looks as if it were produced by “blind, pitiless indifference.” Yet according to a growing number of scientists, discoveries in biology, physics, mathematics, and related fields provide convincing evidence that life was intelligently designed. These same findings undermine the claims of unguided Darwinian evolution.

Come to the 2017 Westminster Conference on Science and Faith to learn how science and faith are not really in conflict, and how the discoveries of science confirm rather than refute some of our deepest intuitions.

Speakers will include molecular biologist Douglas Axe, author of Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition that Life is Designed; theologian Vern Poythress, author of Redeeming Science; biologist Jonathan Wells, author of Icons of Evolution and the forthcoming Zombie Science; K. Scott Oliphint, author of Reasons for Faith; biologist Ransom Poythress of Houghton College; Center for Science & Culture Associate Director Dr. John G. West, author of Darwin Day in America; and physicist Brian Miller of Discovery Institute, among others.

The conference will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 12-13. See here for the tentative program.
