      Conference Opportunity Announcement

      Title: Institute on Religion in an Age of Science (IRAS) Conference
      Dates: July 29-August 5, 2006
      Location: Star Island, NH
      Website: http://www.iras.org/conference.html

      The conference entitled “Emergence: Nature’s Mode of Creativity,” is held annually at Star Island.  The concept of emergence provides new ways of thinking about cosmic and biological evolution, and challenges some widely held paradigms about the nature of Nature.  It also opens up exciting possibilities for reinterpreting many traditional religious views about creation, causality, morality, and the very nature and purpose of human being.  IRAS will hold two conferences, in 2006 and 2007, that explore the potential of this concept to revolutionize our worldviews.  During both conferences, scientists, theologians, philosophers, clergy, and conferees will consider, in plenary sessions and in numerous workshops, how an understanding of emergent modes of creativity offers us ways to feel at home in the universe, on the planet, and in our daily lives, expanding and even transforming our sense of place, gratitude, reverence, obligation, and the sacred.
