If you’re going to be in Southern California this weekend and you’ve got a yearning for some of that good old fashioned, down-home, foot-stompin’, psalm-singin’, floor-rollin’, rafter-shakin’, old-time creationism, then we’ve got great news for you.
You can read all about it at the website of the neo-Luddite, neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute‘s creationist public relations and lobbying operation, the Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids, a/k/a the cdesign proponentsists).
Their post is titled San Diego: Are You Ready for the (Free!) Science and Faith Conference on Saturday? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
This Saturday, September 15, several Center for Science & Culture Fellows will speak at a don’t-miss ID event in San Diego: “Science and Faith: Friends or Foes?” If you’re in Southern California, this is the perfect opportunity to learn about intelligent design from the scholars at the forefront of the movement.
Wow! This is your big chance to hang out with the Discoveroid fellows. They provide a link to the conference with a schedule of the events, and there it’s revealed that the site of the revival meeting is The Rock Church. Here’s their website: Rock Church. We were worried that this might not be an appropriate venue for a Discoveroid revival, but our doubts vanished upon visiting the church’s statement of belief. The location is perfect!
Okay, back to the Discoveroids’ blog article. They say:
Not only is the conference FREE, but the first 200 guests to arrive will receive a gift as well: a copy of either Lee Strobel’s The Case for a Creator DVD, or the new book from Discovery Institute Press, Science and Human Origins.
Hey, you get your choice of two great creationist books. How can you go wrong? What else awaits you there? Let’s read on:
Here is a brief sneak peek into a few of the scheduled presentations:
Here comes the sneak peek:
Dr. Jay Richards, co-author of The Privileged Planet, will talk about the evidence of design in cosmology, physics, and astronomy. He’ll explain how the Earth is precisely fit for life, and will also demonstrate our unique placement in the solar system, which gives us an optimal perspective into the universe.
Whoopee — the author (with Guillermo Gonzalez) of The Privileged Planet. A creationist classic! What other wonders await you? The Discoveroid announcement continues:
Casey Luskin —
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, sorry. Let’s start that paragraph again:
Casey Luskin will be giving two presentations: “Intelligent Design 2.0,” which will highlight recent advances in ID research and explain why Darwinian evolution cannot produce multi-mutation features; and “Human Origins and Human Uniqueness,” looking at genetic, fossil, behavioral, and other biological arguments that challenge a Darwinian explanation of our species and show that human beings are unique.
That should be fascinating! All right then, you know about the event. You know when and where. And you know this is the opportunity of a lifetime. So get yourself on over to San Diego and attend that revival. It’s free! And afterwords, let us know how it was.
