From Evolution News & Views:

The seminars are primarily designed for upper-division undergraduates and graduate students, but each year we try to reserve a few spaces for a special cohort of professors, scientists, teachers, pastors, and other professionals. If that sounds right for you, consider applying.

The seminar will explore cutting-edge ID work in fields such as molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology, developmental biology, paleontology, computational biology, ID-theoretic mathematics, cosmology, physics, and the history and philosophy of science. Past seminars have included such speakers as Michael Behe, Stephen Meyer, William Dembski, Jonathan Wells, Paul Nelson, Jay Richards, Douglas Axe, Ann Gauger, Richard Sternberg, Robert Marks, Scott Minnich, and Bruce Gordon. This seminar is open to students who intend to pursue graduate studies in the natural sciences or the philosophy of science. Applicants must be college juniors or seniors or already in graduate school. Register.


The C.S. Lewis Fellows Program on Science and Society will explore the growing impact of science on politics, economics, social policy, bioethics, theology, and the arts. More. Register.

Actually it isn’t science that is having the impact on public policy; it is (often false, disputed, or unverifiable) claims about science. See, for example: The Left’s war on science? So far as we can see, there is no war. it’s more that some sciences are running out of feet to shoot themselves in. Not an easy job to recruit for.

See also: Falsifiability only gained traction as anti-creation move? Odd, and it speaks very poorly of the science of the day. But one historian says that the historical data demonstrate that view.

More to come.

Bob O'H, you have some time between now and then to submit some papers to BIO-Complexity to show your interest. Mung
Hmm, I'll be in Seattle the week before, for a statistical ecology. I'm not sure my wife will let me stay that long though. I'm not sure I'd be allowed to attend the meeting either. :-) Bob O'H
