Dr Graeme Finlay presents on Genetics, Evolution, Cancer, Suffering and God at Tabor College.

 

 

 

Science is not sufficient to explain all dimensions of existence, and to see science as our only valid guide to understanding reality is a great mistake, argues a new book by British philosopher Professor Roger Trigg. John Pilbrow, Emeritus Professor of Physics, Monash University and a Life Fellow of ISCAST (Christians in Science and Technology), explains.

To get computer models to look similar to the Universe around us, cosmologists have assumed that around 96 per cent of matter and energy are in forms that we cannot directly detect.

Why are we here? is a new four part TV series airing on Foxtel, The History Channel from Saturday 9 July at 6.30 pm.

After HOTAS, HMDs, touchscreens and gesture control - is ‘thought control’ the final evolution of the human-machine interface for pilots? TIM ROBINSON talks to Honeywell Aerospace about its cutting edge research into neural technology.

Title: Reflections on writing as a scientist

Venue: Golden Grove Conference Centre, 5 Forbes St, Newtown

New Atheist leader Richard Dawkins, who was to be in Melbourne in March, was invited to dialogue with ISCAST Executive Officer, Rev. Dr Chris Mulherin, on the City Bible Forum’s “Logos Live” radio program, but Professor Dawkins fell ill, cancelling his trip.

However, the program, on the question "Can we live by science alone?", went ahead, and Chris was interviewed by Rob Martin, Director of CBF in Melbourne.
