ITEST focuses on the many ways that faith and science complement each other in the advancement of human knowledge. To whatever extent science and faith can help each other advance, ITEST wants to be there.
St. Augustine said (400 CE) that “the book of nature and the book of scripture were both written by the same Author, and they cannot be in conflict when properly interpreted and understood.”
ITEST agrees with that completely. The dialog that we have maintained for 50+ years begins with the belief that God revealed scientific knowledge for a purpose: to use it wisely for the betterment of all humankind.
To this end, we need to enter the second half of our century bigger and bolder in terms of the way we present ourselves to the faith and science communities. Our websites are located at http://www.faithscience.org and http://www.creationlens.org and we need to do two things:
1) Consolidate these two sites into a single dynamic vision 2) Update the 2007 product for 2019 and beyond - it needs to be mobile, social media friendly, interactive, and dynamic - in short, it needs to have a WOW factor.
We can do this inexpensively, but we need your help to raise the $5,000 necessary for the overhaul and improvement of our presence in the community. Please consider making your tax deductible donation today!
