Dallas Conference on Science and Faith
According to a nationwide survey, more than two-thirds of atheists and one-third of agnostics believe that “the findings of science make the existence of God less probable,” while nearly half of self-identified theists believe “the findings of science are neutral with regard to the existence of God.”

But what if there is another option? What if the discoveries of science actually lend support to belief in God?

Tackle this question head-on at the upcoming Dallas Conference on Science and Faith on January 18-19, 2019.
