Welcome to SCN Colorado

We believe that scientific progress is impeded and that culture is degraded when the scope of scientific research and debate is artificially limited by excluding the mounting evidence for design in our universe and in life itself, design that cannot be explained by undirected processes.

We are a chapter of the Science & Culture Network, a project of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture. We support its leading role in developing and promoting the scientific evidence for intelligent design by sharing its message with the people of Colorado. Read more.

Metamorphosis (from caterpillar to butterfly) is a roadblock that seems an insurmountable hurdle to the Darwinian model. The complete list of changes that occur in one to two weeks is astounding. Join us in exploring this phenomenon and more with our speaker Tom Siewert.

Many engineers intuitively see design behind the incredible complexity of even simple organisms. We will take some biological data and combine it with some simple statistics to try to understand how long evolution would take.

Evidence Against Neo-Darwinian Evolution from the Fossil Record

The Science and Culture Network Chapter in Southern California invites you to join the latest in a series of webinars on intelligent design featuring a variety of Center for Science & Culture scientists and scholars. Renowned German paleontologist Dr. Gunter Bechly will present a talk on how the Neo-Darwinian theory of evolution predicts a gradual bottom-up pattern of appearances of new biological kinds and body plans in the fossil record. The actual fossil record strongly contradicts this prediction and consistently features discontinuities and abrupt appearances in all groups and all geological eras. To demonstrate that this is not restricted to the famous Cambrian Explosion, 20 more examples are provided from the origin of life to the “Big Bang” of the genus Homo. This

The Science & Culture Network Chapter in Southern California, with support from Chapters in Houston and Colorado, invites you to join this upcoming webinar and Q&A with Douglas Axe, William Briggs, and Jay Richards — the three authors of the forthcoming book The Price of Panic — How the Tyranny of Experts Turned a Pandemic into a Catastrophe. Regardless of what you’ve heard — or think you know — about the COVID-19 pandemic, The Price of Panic is sure to bring a fresh, new, and well-researched perspective to the table. The much-anticipated book is scheduled for release on October 13th, and we are privileged to have all three co-authors on this exclusive webinar to showcase its contents just days after release. Mark your calendars for Friday, October

The Science & Culture Network Chapter in Colorado, with support from Chapters in Houston and Southern California, invites you to join this upcoming webinar and Q&A with Center for Science & Culture Senior Fellow Paul Nelson. Dr. Nelson will explain the concept of design triangulation and explore its promising application to biological discovery. Here’s a thought to whet your appetite. Have you ever successfully figured out how something complicated worked by observing the system carefully and then inferring from what you can see to what you haven’t yet seen? If so, you have used a method of reasoning we can call design triangulation. Design triangulation is widely employed in biology (in practice, if not in name) to predict the functional features of cells or

Dr. Behe Presents on Darwin Devolves in Central Colorado

Renowned author of Darwin’s Black Box (1996) and Edge of Evolution (2007), professor and biochemist Dr. Michael Behe will be presenting the message of his latest book — Darwin Devolves — at these two locations in Central Colorado next month. Mark your calendars, and spread the word! Twenty years after publishing Darwin’s Black Box, Behe shows that new scientific discoveries point to a stunning fact: Darwin’s mechanism works by a process of devolution, not evolution. On the surface, evolution can help make something look and act differently, but it doesn’t have the ability to build or create anything at the genetic level. Critically analyzing the latest research, Behe gives a sweeping tour of how modern theories of evolution fall short and how the devolving nature of
