Discovery Institute has two intensive summer seminars on intelligent design, science, and culture from July 9-17, 2010 in Seattle. The first seminar is for students in the natural sciences and philosophy of science; the second seminar is for students in the social sciences and humanities (including politics, law, journalism, and theology).

These seminars are designed for highly-motivated college students who seek a deeper understanding of science and its implications for society. The seminar focusing on ID in the natural sciences will explore the scientific issues in greater technical detail and the seminar on ID in the social sciences and humanities will give more in-depth attention to the social impact of science. This year’s seminar will feature Michael BeheDouglas AxeStephen MeyerJay Richards, and many other leading lights in the intelligent design community.

Discovery Institute will pay expenses for students who are accepted into this special program (travel, lodging, meals, books and other course materials). Applications will be accepted until April 16, 2010, but earlier applications may receive priority consideration. Click here for more information.

  1. This really should be stimulating and interesting for young people. Instead of sitting in a conventional PC government classroom, where students hear endless, mindless, robotic droning (nonhuman robots please accept my apologies for the comparison – you’re not this boring): 1) evolution (whatever that means) is a fact; 2) the debate is over and the science is settled; 3) nothing in biology makes sense without “evolution”; 4) all real scientists agree that Darwin solved life’s mysteries and random variation/mutation plus natural selection is the greatest idea anyone ever had (gag me with a spoon, dude); 5) the fossil record is just overflowing with examples of Darwinian gradualism; 6) if you question any of this you’re a stupid religious fanatic who wants to destroy science…

    What could be less interesting or more stifling? What could be more boring? The “science” is settled? Any student with sense (who has not be coerced into silence by the PC police) would ask, “Dirt turned into me by accident? Are you totally full of crap, out of touch with reality, or on drugs? One of the three must surely be true.”

    It should be refreshing and inspiring for young people with inquiring minds to learn that they’ve been sold a bill of goods by their “educators,” and that they can finally, really, be educated.

    I wish the seminar was being held here in Southern California. Then I would definitely attend. Anybody know of any significant and upcoming ID events being held here? Let me know.
