Has science disproved God? Or do new scientific discoveries actually provide compelling support for faith? According to a recent survey, 55% of American adults believe that “science and religion [are] often in conflict.” This same attitude can be found among young adults. Nearly a third of young adults with a Christian background say “churches are out of step with the scientific world we live in,” and a quarter of them think “Christianity is anti-science.”
Join us on Sept. 21, 2014 by becoming a host for this worldwide simulcast event, your church or Christian school can address questions about faith and science in a positive, constructive manner with engaging, world-class speakers. REGISTER TODAY
The simulcast will feature renowned Oxford University Professor John Lennox and New York Times bestselling author Stephen Meyer, two of today’s leading speakers and writers on the intersection between science and faith. The simulcast will be emceed by bestselling author Eric Metaxas, whose speaking style has been described as “a combination of edgy wit, charm, inspiration, evangelization, [and] thoughtfulness,” making him a highly sought after public speaker, especially on college campuses.
Questions to be addressed during the simulcast include:
• Has science disproved God?
• Are science and faith really in conflict?
• Just how “scientific” are the claims of leading atheists?
• Are human beings the result of an unguided Darwinian process?
• Does nature supply evidence of intelligent design?
To maximize the impact of this simulcast, churches will be able to purchase resource packs of books, videos, and curricula for those who want to continue to explore the issues raised. Free digital documents that can be printed and distributed to attendees will also be provided.
This simulcast will be of interest to everyone, but it will be especially helpful for parents and their middle school, high school, and college-age children. Churches with significant high school and/or college ministries will also find this event particularly valuable. There are many ways a church or Christian school or even a homeschool co-op could use this event effectively: As an all-church seminar; as part of an adult education series on science and faith; as a back-to-school event for parents and youth; and/or as a special youth group event.
Churches and schools who sign-up to host this simulcast by March 30, 2014 can submit three questions for the speakers to consider answering during the question and answer part of the event.
