A New Look for ITEST

$300 of $5,000 goal

ITEST 2019
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!

Good day, friends! Our new website is now active, but we continue to need your support on our paying for it. More than a website, what we've built at https://faithscience.org is a portal for global engagement. You'll see how that works in the months ahead. Please help us spread the need for our ongoing development of our website. Thanks so very much for the prayers and the support you've already provided!

Thank you, friends, for helping us prepare for the redevelopment and merging of our two websites, faithscience.org and creationlens.org, to ensure mobile access, security and social media friendly accessibility.

To date, we've raised $130 through this GoFundMe and another $250 from an outside donor, for a total of $380. That will pay for most of the back end work we need preparatory to the designer's rebuilding the front end.

When the new site is available, our fifty-year-old faith-science organization founded by Fr. Robert A. Brungs, SJ, will be more able to share our ministry professing the Augustinian principle that faith and science are complementary paths to the one truth and cannot be in conflict when properly understood.

Please consider, in your charity, helping us complete the work that we have begun.
