The American Scientific Affiliation (ASA) (network.asa3.org) was founded in 1941 as an international network of Christians in the sciences.  Members of the ASA are united by a belief in orthodox Christianity, as defined by the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds and a commitment to mainstream science, that is, any subject on which there is a clear scientific consensus.  The ASA is not an advocacy organization. Where there is honest disagreement on an aspect of science, Christian faith, or the relationship between the two, the ASA strives to create a safe environment in which dialogue can flourish and diverse, even contrasting, ideas can be discussed with courtesy and respect.
