The meeting will take place January 26-27 at Biola University. On Friday night, we will have a debate between David Snoke (me) and Mike Keas on “Are predatory animals a result of the Fall?” (Mike: yes; David: no). This question lies at the core of much of the debate about science and Christianity: could God have had a hand in what we consider to be natural evils? Are they the result of people’s sin, or random forces, not God?
Saturday afternoon, we will have four speakers addressing issues on the general topic of natural evil More.

Save the date for the April meeting in Pittsburgh
Dates are April 6-7, at the Twentieth Century Club in Pittsburgh. The theme will be “Quantum Mechanics”. Among others, National Academy of Sciences member Bob Griffiths will be one of the speakers. Bob has lectured and written on the foundations of quantum mechanics for years. We will try to make sure that the talks are accessible to non-physicists!
