Southern California Chapter

The mission of the Southern California Chapter of the Science & Culture Network is to advance the understanding that human beings and nature are the result of intelligent design rather than a blind and undirected process. We organize events all over Southern California, extending the length of the southern coastline to the desert region, with an emphasis on the Los Angeles and Orange County metro areas.

We are a chapter of the Science & Culture Network, a project of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture.

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

Nanotech has quickly become a fascinating and extensive area of scientific research. This emerging field is blossoming with opportunity and great promise — from nanoscopic cars to a wide variety of other nanomachines including drills that can be used in targeted cancer treatments. By operating on the same nanoscale as chemistry and biology, new levels of miniaturization and efficiency are being achieved, enabling human technologies to interact directly with sophisticated networks of biological machines in nature. As is the case with nanomachines that have long existed in the biological cell, so these human innovations exhibit the brilliance and creativity of their corresponding designers.

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
