This just in from Walter Bradley, President of the ASA:
I wanted to bring to your attention a unique opportunity this summer. The annual meeting of the American Scientific Affiliation will be held at Baylor University July 31-August 3. The ASA is the world’s largest organization of evangelical Christians who work in science and engineering, and it provides a forum to discuss faith-science questions.
The program this year is particularly exciting with a mini-symposium on string theory and the alleged multi-universe and another symposium on origins where theistic evolution and intelligent design will be discussed. Timely issues raised by the human genome and its interpretation by some to imply a non-historical Adam and Eve will be discussed by three outstanding theologians, including Jack Collins from Covenant Theological Seminary (with 2 degrees from MIT in electrical engineering). Astronaut Charlie Duke will be keynoting the conference, describing his experiences as the first and only person to drive on the moon…..and his journey to faith subsequently. Exciting sessions on sociology and psychology and Christian faith, history of science and faith, and human conscientiousness are also included along with two sessions on appropriate technology as a means of ministering to the poor.
Stephen Meyer, Bill Dembski, Bruce Gordon, Doug Axe, Robert Marks, David Snoke and Richard Sternberg will all be presenting in the Origins mini-symposium. The complete program can be found at www.asa3.org by clicking the link for the program for the 2009 annual meeting.
The deadline for early registration discounts is June 30th, so please check it out quickly the program and register by next Tuesday to get the early registration discount.
See you at the conference,
