Donations in support of our Executive Officer, Chris Mulherin are coming in. We thank each of you who have donated already for your support.
The target this year is $60,000. To date we have raised just over $20,000. If each member of ISCAST was to donate $300 we would cover the target easily (although we are happy to receive more if you are able).

Many assume that modern science has rendered religious explanations irrelevant, and some go further to say that science alone can answer all of the questions of life.
Dates: Thusday 24 - Friday 25 November 2016
