Yesterday, Sarah Chaffee pointed out a remarkable article in the top science journal Nature, “Stop the science training that demands ‘don’t ask’.” It was remarkable because of the candor in its admission that conventional science education indeed demands that we “not ask” certain things. Often, science instruction substitutes atheistic assumptions for critical analysis, particularly when attention turns to questions that could be considered of ultimate importance.
Most of us, in our education, were trained in that stifling way of thinking. We have to struggle mightily to think outside its constraints. And in that effort, we need help. Coaching, you might say.
“How to Ask”
What you need is a daylong immersion experience, re-training you in how to ask, and how to answer when other people tell you that you don’t get to ask. Well, guess what? Here is some fine news. We’ve got such a day planned, Saturday, January 25, in the Dallas, TX, area. The 2020 Dallas Conference on Science & Faith is organized by Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture. Led by some of the leading scientists and scholars in the intelligent design movement, it’s an all-day program that drew a HUGE response last year.
Register Early and Save
January 25 will be here before you know it, but what’s coming up even faster is the close of the Early Bird special for general admission, December 17. That means you’ve got exactly two weeks from today to register and get the best price. There is also a student price, and the conference includes a youth track for teens. Find more information and an online registration form here.
Speakers include biochemist Michael Behe, author of Darwin Devolves; philosopher of science Stephen Meyer, author of The Return of the God Hypothesis; molecular biologist Douglas Axe, author of Undeniable; materials scientist Walter Bradley, co-author of The Mystery of Life’s Origin; and political scientist John West, author of Darwin Day in America. Find a tentative schedule for the conference here.
Don’t miss a great day for asking the most important questions we can ask. What was last year’s conference like? If you missed this on YouTube, check out Rice University synthetic organic chemist James Tour, who tore into conventional answers about the origin of life, in spectacular style:
