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

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.
