Call For Papers

Scope: Fundamental or experimental research and theoretical papers describing original, previously unpublished work in all the scientific fields that could be involved into the dialogue with theology are solicited. All accepted papers will be considered for publication in the conference proceedings and presentation at the conference. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in any of the three sections of the conference (including, but not limited only to the following topics of interest from each section):


(topics under consideration: the origin and evolution of the universe; cosmic coincidences and the anthropic principle; conditions for extraterrestrial intelligent civilizations; Is there anything esle besides this Universe?; the universe has a purpose; the primary condition of the universe; the fabric of the universe; universe with life or nothing).


(topics under consideration: the origin and evolution of life; irreducible complexity and intelligent design; extraterrestrial life; define life in the context of the limits of the substance (matter) and life (energy); What is life made of?).


(topics under consideration: humankind’s past, present and future; mind and consciousness; free will and human behavior; death and after it; is it possible for the evolution to explain human nature and the moral character of its acts, or is it something else needed, other than science can explain on its own?).

These issues can be approached from a number of perspectives.

We invite you to enter this dialogue with your knowledge, research and findings to help people understand if / how it is possible for someone to believe in God without convicting science, and, vice versa, if / how it is possible for a scientist to keep his findings and never renounce his faith in God. As Francisco J. Ayala said, I can believe that I am God's creature without denying that I developed from a single cell in my mother's womb by natural processes (Darwin's Gift to Science and Religion, Joseph Henry Press, Washington, DC, 2007, pg. 175).
