The Richmond Center for Christian Study presents “Does Current Science Support Darwinian Evolution?: Two Scientists Examine the Most Recent Evidence.” Download a complete itinerary of the event here.

This event provides a unique opportunity for high school students and their parents to hear about the exciting and developing scientific research of intelligent design, an alternative to Darwinian evolution as a theory of the origins of biological life and the universe itself. Among other speakers will be Dr. Michael Behe, a Senior Fellow at the Center for Science and Culture and a Professor of Biological Sciences at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, and Dr. Paul Nelson, also a Senior Fellow of the Discovery Institute and an Adjunct Professor in the Master of Arts Program in Science & Religion at Biola University. Both Behe and Nelson have been involved in intelligent design research and scholarship for at least three decades, and are passionate about sharing the developing research with open-minded students. Come learn about recent scientific findings that have refuted Darwin’s theory of evolution and pointed instead towards design and purpose in the natural world.
