I recently had the pleasure of attending the 6’th annual Westminster Conference on Science and Faith held in the Philadelphia area.

Some world-class thinkers, writers and scientists spoke at this conference, and I would like to  share them with you.  First the speaker line up:

  • “The Wonders of Creation and Its Creator” (Vern Poythress) A New Testament Professor at Westminster.
    • “Evolution: Still a Theory in Crisis” (Michael Denton) –  Breakout session *
    • “The Importance of Creation” (Scott Oliphint)-  Breakout session
    • “Why Is Science Possible?” (Vern Poythress)-  Breakout session

A few short videos (~10 minutes) may interest you: these are snippets of debates between John Lennox and Richard Dawkins – Dawkins is one of the most prominent and outspoken atheists living today.

Casey is quite a prolific writer at Discovery.org, a Seattle based Intelligent Design organization. I’ve met Casey on several occasions and enjoy him very much. 

 

At the conference I had occasion for a bit of personal times with these folks – I bummed rides with them to and from the hotel to the conference.
