Host a Worldwide Simulcast with Lennox, Meyer and Metaxas on "Science and Faith: Are They Really in Conflict?"
It's one of the most pervasive, persuasive and corrosive messages in our culture: that religion is in fundamental conflict with science. If it were true, given the prestige of science, that would spell the doom of most faiths. Is it true?
On September 21, 2014, your church or other organization can host an important simulcast event featuring three brilliant, inspiring, funny and personally charismatic speakers. They will tackle the question head-on:
Has science disproved God? Or have new scientific discoveries actually provided compelling support for faith?
- Dr. John Lennox is an Oxford University professor of mathematics, author of numerous books including God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?, who is widely beloved as a C.S. Lewis for the 21st century.
- Dr. Stephen Meyer is a Cambridge University-trained philosopher of science, director of Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture, and dynamic author of Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design.
- In the Science & Faith Simulcast, Lennox and Meyer will be led in a probing, accessible conversation by Eric Metaxas, the witty and entertaining New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy.
Lennox, Meyer and Metaxas are highly sought after world-class speakers. Thanks to this affordable simulcast, you can bring the three of them together for an enlightening two-hour event, from 7 to 9 PM, that will spark conversation and thought in your church, school, or other community group.

Sponsored by the Center for Science & Culture in conjunction with in:cast events, this worldwide simulcast could not be more timely.
Surveys show that more than half of American adults believe that "science and religion are often in conflict." Nearly a third of young adults with a Christian background say "churches are out of step with the scientific world we live in," and a quarter of them think "Christianity is anti-science."
Though the simulcast is relevant for everyone, it's especially vital that parents and students learn about the issues that Lennox, Meyer and Metaxas discuss, including:
- Just how "scientific" are the claims of leading atheists?
- Are human beings the result of an unguided Darwinian process?
- Does nature bear scientific evidence of intelligent design?
- Is religion a "science stopper"?
- Does the Bible contradict science?
