Astronomy Conference Begins Monday

by Ken Ham on July 6, 2013

Beginning this Monday, July 8, and ending July 10, Concordia University in Wisconsin will host a creation conference with the theme, “The Heavens Declare: What Astronomy Can Tell Us About Biblical Creation.” Dr. Danny Faulkner (AiG–US) and Dr. Don DeYoung will be speaking. Both are members of the Creation Research Society (CRS).


AiG astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner spoke to our staff recently; he will be in Wisconsin on Monday to speak on astronomy.

Dr. Faulkner, who recently retired from a full-time university professorship at University of South Carolina Lancaster, now serves on the staff of Answers in Genesis. Dr. Faulkner oversees the observatory and planetarium programs at Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum.

The conference is being arranged by the co-founders of the Society of Creation, a 52-member biblical creation organization within the Concordia University System—ten universities operated by The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. While the Concordia University System is a Lutheran group of institutions, the conference is open to all denominations. Dr. Faulkner has informed me that both co-founders, Dr. Gary Locklair, on the computer science faculty at Concordia University (Wisconsin), and Dr. Joel Heck, on the theology faculty at Concordia University (Texas), are members of CRS.

Registration is $50 per person for the conference, and those who wish to attend can contact Dr. Heck via email at HeckYes(at) for more information. For more information about the conference, visit

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
