Todd Wood: March speaking tour of the UK

Further to the recent announcement about Dr Todd Wood’s visit to the UK in March 2010, full details of his itinerary are now available on the Biblical Creation Ministries diary page. I have also taken the liberty of listing the details at the end of this post.

Todd will be speaking at venues in Salford (11 March), Coventry (13 March), Cambridge (14 March) and Elsenham (16 March). The meetings are open to the public and all are very welcome to attend.

At three of these meetings, Todd will be speaking on Science and the Supernatural and will address the question of what it means to be both a scientist and a creationist. Modern scientists commonly claim that true science cannot consider supernatural causes, since they are outside the realm of observation. Todd will review the reasons for this and propose a way to allow the supernatural realm to inform and enrich scientific research. This talk is suitable for all audiences.

At the meeting in Coventry, Todd’s theme will be a somewhat more technical presentation entitled The Challenge of Darwin. Throughout Origin of Species, Charles Darwin makes the case that a wide variety of biological data is “inexplicable” on the view of creation. Twentieth century evolutionary biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky went further with his claim that “nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.” But Todd will review and evaluate an emerging model of biological origins that explicitly denies the ancestry of all living things.

If you would like further details about any of these meetings, please contact the tour co-ordinators, Stephen and Joan Bazlinton, by telephone (01371 856495) or email (s.j.bazlinton@googlemail.com), or the listed contact person at each venue.

  1. I’ve often wondered about how to test for God in science, but given that I believe Him to be a constant in the universe, I haven’t been able to devise a control experiment in which He is absent. I’d be curious to know how Todd does it.
