Wood & Falk August '13

Discussion Series on the Origins of Human Existence

In 2015 we will continue the conversation between evolutionary creationists and young earth creationists. TCF Fellows and scientists Darrel Falk and Todd Wood represent two different positions at these events, and we invite other Christian scientists to join the conversation around the country. Some events are invitation-only while others are open to the public.

TCF gathers these scientists with the goal of working and worshiping together; discussing motivations that drive their research; and ultimately, lessening the contentious divide between various groups by highlighting what each has to offer to scientific development and to the kingdom of God.
