Beyond Conflict: Evolution, Science and God – NZ conference late August

Our friends at New Zealand Christians in Science are hosting a conference in late August, and would love to see some Aussies there! Why not visit the lovely southern island and listen to talks by Prof. Barbara Rossing and A/Prof. Andrew Gosler?

For more information about this conference, take a look at this flyer, or at the NZCIS site.

 

 

 

Book Preview: Am I Just My Brain?

The book "Am I Just My Brain" is out now. Science and Belief has published a series of excerpts from the book, such as:

EMGS formally announces Randy Jirtle as the 2019 recipient of the Alexander Hollaender Award.

Randy is a friend of ISCAST having visited us (the ISCAST Vic committee and Mark Worthing in Adelaide) about this time last year. He is a leading researcher in genomics, particularly in environmental mutagenesis, the process whereby the environment can affect the expression of genes and phenotypic traits in living things.

We congratulate him on receiving the 2019 Alexander Hollaender Award.
