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 excellence in science.  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.

News for SCCS Events: 2010 - 2012

Posted By Jason N. Hine, Sunday, December 02, 2012

Attached to this blog post is a PDF containing an archive of the reports made on Southern California Christians in Science (SCCS) events during the years of 2010 through 2012. These reports were first published on our group's page on the old ASA site. The reports are being archived here so they aren't lost when the our old page goes away... more on that in an upcoming post.
