Our Summer Seminars on Intelligent Design are a high point of each year. Undergraduate and graduate students gather here in Seattle from around the globe to learn with the top scientists and scholars in the world of intelligent design. There’s a track focused on the natural sciences, and another with a focus on science and culture. This year the Seminars will be held from July 5 to 13, 2019. I am assured that our current snow dump will have been cleared away by then.
Populating the Underground
A highlight will be studying with biochemist Michael Behe. Professor Behe’s new book, Darwin Devolves, out in a couple of weeks, is already shaping up to be the ID event of the year as evolutionists struggle to find an apt reply. (See here, here, and here.) Other teachers are drawn from the ranks of those 1000+ Darwin-doubting scientists who have publicly identified themselves. The Summer Seminars are one of the top ways that we have populated the growing ID “underground” among young scientists who are still keeping their own skepticism about evolution prudently private. Oh, if the walls of those Seminar classrooms could speak!
Past teachers have included Steve Meyer, Robert Marks, Paul Nelson, Jay Richards, Doug Axe, Bruce Gordon, Brian Miller, Scott Minnich, Ann Gauger, John West, Richard Sternberg, and more. Often we’ve included instructors from the underground whose identity is not released except to students once you get to Seattle.
How to Apply
If you’d like to be part of this great experience, it’s time to start getting your application materials together. We cover the costs of your week in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Applying is not hard, but it is selective. On a case-by-case basis, we are able to provide travel scholarships. We also reserve a few spots for professors and other professionals. The deadline is April 2, 2019. More information and links to an online application are here.
If you’re not a student, but know someone who is who would be interested, please share this post and help us get out the word! Oh, and If you care about the future of science, and of our culture, that the Summer Seminars are helping to shape by training a new generation, please consider donating to join us in making this important opportunity possible.
