Trinity Baptist Church Norman


Tell others about this event below. Trinity Baptist Church, Norman will host the science and faith conference.
FYI -- O.U. is doing a big Darwin 200 Celebration ( ) February 12 is the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth. Events are listed on the University of Oklahoma's website. The event that disturbs me most is Richard Dawkins coming to O.U. because he will be paid a lot of money and I'm wondering if that is taken from my taxes. On March 6, Oxford University professor, Dr. Richard Dawkins, renowned evolutionary biologist, theorist, and outspoken atheist will meet with students and deliver a public lecture. Dawkins is the author of The God Delusion, The Blind Watchmaker, etc. Dawkins was interviewed by Ben Stein in the movie, EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed. I would not mind if O.U. used my taxes to bring Ben to speak on the Norman campus.

Oklahomans for Better Science ( ) will be partnering with the IDEA club at O.U. ( ) to counter O.U.'s so-called Darwin 200 celebration. There will be others speaking at O.U. sponsored by the IDEA club. I have heard but not verified, that Dr. William Dembski and Dr. Al Mohler will speak on the O.U. campus to give the other side of this controversial topic.

See below about the conference. For further information about the conference, Ray Martin's email is: or contact Ryan Polk on staff at Trinity Baptist, Norman:


We have scheduled a Science and Faith conference for Feb. 7 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Trinity Baptist in Norman. Keynote speakers include Dr. Mike Strauss, a particle physicist at OU and faculty sponsor of IDEA club, Jeff Harwell, a chemical engineer and ID proponent who introduced Dembski last Sept., and Ronnie Rogers, pastor at Trinity who will speak on naturalism's impact on the Gospel.

There will also be breakout sessions where others will teach in smaller settings on more specific topics.

The cost is $5.
