ISCAST’s 11th Conference on Science and Christianity (COSAC) will be held in Brisbane from March 23 to 25, 2018. It's shaping up to be a conference to remember, with something for everyone: Cosmology – Theology – History – Apologetics – Ethics – Philosophy ... all in the name of robust and thoughtful Christian engagement in an age of science and technology.

Some reflections on teaching science, religion and thinking about the big questions with Year 5 students

It is usually towards the end of Year 4 that students begin to ask me various questions concerning the creation of this world. How did God create the world? Did it begin with a big bang? What did God make humans out of? How does God heal people? How old is God because I think he must be 14 million years? Of course this last student has had some conversation or read about the age of the earth somewhere and put together the age of the earth with the age of God.

ISCAST fellow and Mars-man, Jonathan Clark, reports on his latest Mars simulation in The Conversation

Jonathan Clarke has just returned from another mission to simulate life on Mars. This time he was on Devon Island in the Canadian Arctic, where the sun never sets in the northern summer. It’s all part of a project to see what some of the challenges are, should humans one day decide to live on Mars. (Jon will be speaking at ISCAST's science, faith and apologetics conference in March 2018.)
