A Science & Worldview Symposium, which is a joint effort between Mount Carmel Outreach and Net-Tech Investigators, will focus on issues impacting the Christian worldview Saturday, Nov. 15. The event runs from 8 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in Rooms A and B on the lower level of the Holiday Inn, 7550 E. State St., Rockford.
The keynote speaker for the event is David D’Armond, a practicing geologist who graduated from the University of Oregon. D’Armond began his career as an avid evolutionist, but the facts that he observed in the field did not make sense. One day, he called his professor at the university with 12 questions. The professor did not answer any of his questions, but within the day, he was removed from the university mailing list and shunned by all of his colleagues.
D’Armond is now active as a geologist in environmental remediation.
The other five speakers at the symposium and their topics are as follow:
♦ Joe Guth, president, Mount Carmel Outreach — What Worldview Means;
♦ Leonard (Len) Salvig, leader, Net-Tech Investigators — New Finds Impacting Worldviews;
♦ Al Steely, science teacher, Rockford Christian Schools — Wonder & Beauty of Cell Structures;
♦ Larry Opie, computer engineer, Motorola Solutions (retired) — Fine Tuning of the Universe;
♦ David D’Armond, geologist — Exploding Volcanoes, Strange Fossils, and Carbon 14; and
♦ Phil Delre, executive director, Institute for Christian Apologetics — How Then Should We Live?
“All of the speakers aim their presentations at lay people and students,” explained the event coordinator, Len Salvig. “We purposely avoid mathematical equations and highly technical details.”
Admission is free, but a donation is requested.
