Christian Scientific Society
Annual Meeting Coming Up Soon!
Now is the time to register for the annual meeting, so that we can make our final plans. The dates are May 9-10 (Friday evening and Saturday morning and afternoon) and the location will be a hall on the University of Pittsburgh campus (to be determined, based on the registration numbers we get in the next two weeks). Details for the meeting, including our outstanding set of five speakers talking on the anthropology and theology of Adam and Eve, can be found at this link. There is still space for contributed talks on Saturday afternoon.
The Christian Scientific Society aims to be a “society” in the original sense: a community of like-minded people who critique each other’s work and stimulate further work. We are not a mouthpiece for one person, as is unfortunately common with Christian non-profits, we are not just an honorary club, and we are not a single-agenda lobbying group. We do expect to issue public statements from time to time, but our mission is not one of political or cultural change. We seek to know truth ourselves, and to make the truth known.
As our name says, we are about science from a Christian perspective. This means, first of all, that we seek to not just philosophize about science, but to actually do science. We love pure philosophers and theologians, and welcome their participation in our discussions, but full members of our society must be actual scientists (or doctors, engineers or mathematicians with research experience). Those who do not have scientific credentials are welcome to become associate members and join our discussion boards, but we feel strongly that those who speak for the society must have scientific expertise.
