Ibero-American Meeting of Science and Faith

Pablo de Felipe and Pedro Zamora, ECF Recipients
September 30, 2015
Mexico City, Mexico

Starting Wednesday, September 30 through Friday, October 2, 2015, Pablo de Felipe and Pedro Zamora (Evolution and Christian Faith grant recipients) will be part of the Ibero-American Meeting of Science and Faith in Mexico City.

Ibero-America is a complicated socio-cultural context, in which research, education and dissemination about science and faith, in general is still not sufficiently recognized as a viable academic field, and even much less, considered as an important topic of discussion in our contemporary society. Academics will present their particular topics of research, and receive relevant feedback to improve the quality of their research. In addition to the plenary tracks, there will be extensive workshop sessions highlighting not only academics but also delegates from different Christian organizations interested in extending these issues to the wide non-academic public.

A Talk on “Origins” and “God of the Universe”

Deborah Haarsma, President of BioLogos
April 11, 2016
Harrisonburg, VA

In April of 2016, BioLogos President Deborah Haarsma will be speaking at the Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) in Harrisonburg, VA. She will be speaking to a combined audience of undergraduate STEM students/faculty (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), nursing students/faculty, and MA in Biomedicine graduate students/faculty.

Her afternoon talk at EMU is titled “Origins: Christian Perspectives on Creation, Design, Evolution, and Human Origins”.
Description: Many people in our culture, both secular and Christian, claim that science and religion cannot live together. The loudest debates are between young earth creationism and atheistic evolution.  This presentation will review other Christian positions, including old earth creationism, intelligent design, and evolutionary creationism.  Come for an introduction to the most compelling scientific evidence around origins from astronomy, geology, paleontology, and genetics, and a discussion of how these can be compatible with vibrant, biblical faith.

Her event talk at Cafe Veritas is titled “God and the Universe”.
Description: Join us on a visual tour of the universe. Dr. Haarsma will draw on her scientific expertise and her Christian faith as she points out the myriad of ways in which “the heavens declare the glory of God” (Psalm 19:1). When viewed through the lens of Christian faith, recent astronomical discoveries like exoplanets, galaxy formation, and dark energy serve to illustrate the extravagance, creativity, and mystery of the God of the Bible.
