What we're about

The Houston Chapter of the Science & Culture Network seeks to communicate the scientific evidence for intelligent design to the greater Houston area.

Who We Are

We are a diverse group with the shared belief that human beings and nature are the result of intelligent design (http://www.intelligentdesign.org/) rather than blind, undirected, and mindless processes. We believe the natural world manifests evidence of intelligence in its design and this has been detected using the rigorous methods of science. We are a chapter of the Science & Culture Network, a project of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture (http://discovery.org/id).

What We Do

We sponsor events, discussions, and support the work of intelligent design scientists and educators around the world, and we provide resources to educate faith and private-school communities on the science of intelligent design.

We seek long-term individual and cultural change through education and outreach:

Helping local faith, private, homeschool, and other communities educate their adult and youth on the science of intelligent design.

Educating our membership on the important interaction between science, culture, and faith.

Increasing awareness of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture (http://discovery.org/id) and its leading role in developing and promoting the scientific evidence from nature for design by an intelligent agent.

How We Can Help You

We can assist you by:

Helping you select and deliver appropriate intelligent design resources to educate the youth and adults in your community.
