Mount Paran Christian School will have a two-hour event titled “Science and Faith: Are They Really in Conflict?” on Sunday from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Kristi Lynn Theatre.

This event will feature two of today’s leading speakers on science and faith: Oxford University professor John Lennox and New York Times bestselling author Stephen Meyer, director of the Center for Science and Culture at Discovery Institute and a leading proponent of the idea that nature displays evidence of intelligent design. The event will be emceed by bestselling Christian author Eric Metaxas.

The event is open to the public, but tickets are now sold out.

The theater is at 1275 Stanley Rd NW, Kennesaw.

Intelligent design is not science.

Its religion dressed up in a lab coat.

Steve Meyer is a charlatan and a fraud and his work is

totally rejected in the worlds university science departments, all credible science journals and organizations, the US courts and most mainstream Christian national church councils.

In other words, this revival meeting is so that Meyers can sell his

incredibly bizarre intelligent design magical "science" books and mislead people.

Some Christians these folks are eh?

Liars.

"Its religion dressed up in a lab coat."

You are parroting Matt Diliahunty's catch phrase, following the Kitzmiller v. Dover trial, where ID was grossly mischarterized.

One example: From the Judge Jones decision: "Third, Professor Steven Wm. Fuller testified that it is ID's project to change the ground rules of science to include the supernatural."

If one reads day 15's total testimony of Fuller, it is obvious that the grilling and 'wittness leading' by two Plaintiffs attorneys, followed by selective quote mining by the judge, preceded the above conclusion. Fuller made NO such concession as he has stated since (read 'Science vs. Religion' by Fuller).

ID is not only a valid hypothesis, but eclipses the NeoDarwinian naturalism premise when the current data is objectively assessed. But at least for now, the politics of the 'doctrine' of abject materialism holds center stage. Cheers or boo's? We can do better.
