If you're in the neighborhood of Philadelphia, do join us for this year's Westminster Conference on Science and Faith, Friday and Saturday, April 11-12. The theme is "Science and Design" and you'll hear speakers including Michael Behe, William Dembski, John West, Douglas Axe, and Casey Luskin. Meet and talk with the stars of the intelligent-design movement!

The animation was created by 3D animator Joseph Condeelis of Light Production in North Carolina. It is fantastic, and a work of art in its own right. This is one of those cases where you have to see it to believe it.

You'll be hearing more about all this here on ENV looking forward to the scheduled mid-May public debut. For a sneak peek, though, you'll need to be in Philly this weekend.

Questions on our speakers' agenda will include:

  • Is there evidence of intelligent design in nature?
  • Is that evidence scientifically robust?
  • Why does it matter whether the universe gives evidence of design?

Co-sponsored by Westminster Theological Seminary and the Center for Science & Culture, the conference will be held at Covenant Fellowship Church in Glen Mills. Walk-up registration opens at noon on Friday and the action gets going at 2 pm. You'll find the conference schedule here. Because materials and lunches have been pre-ordered, we can't guarantee enough supplies for walk-ups, but we will do our best to accommodate you. The price is $95 for the general public, $40 for students.

Of course, if you weren't planning on being in Philadelphia, you can always make plans now to go there. It's a free country.
