Science & Faith: Friends or Foes?

Science & Faith: Friends or Foes? Is the title of a conference which will take place on October 23-24, 2009 AD at the Riley Conference Center on the campus of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Nota Bene reports:
Are science and faith at war? Does science undermine or corroborate belief in God? Does faith suppress or inspire scientific research? Explore these questions and more at a two-day conference…

Sessions will explore a Biblical theology of nature; the role of Christianity in the founding of modern science; the impact of Darwinian Evolution on ethics, society, Biblical studies and theology; and the scientific evidence for intelligent design and its implications for theism.

This conference will be of special interest to seminary students, college students, and pastors and other church leaders.

At the end of the conference there will be breakout sessions for students and church leaders on how to incorporate science and faith issues into one's church, ministry, or career.

Dr. William Dembski, author of The Design Revolution, The End of Christianity.
