Adam, the Fall, and the Goodness of God
Trinity International University, Deerfield IL
TIU

The Christian tradition has historically maintained that Adam and Eve, our first human ancestors, were created in a state of righteousness that was lost through Adam’s disobedience. In this conference our aim is to clarify the theological stakes of the current debate in a manner faithful to Scripture and in open and earnest dialogue with modern scientific research. What are the exegetical, philosophical, and theological consequences of adopting the various competing models of Adam and the fall? What can we learn from the judgments and debates of the early church surrounding the doctrine of creation that may be able to offer guidance to the current discussion? What does Scripture, properly interpreted, require that we believe about Adam and the fall?

India Votes 2019

Chicago Council

Sadanand Dhume, Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute; Tanvi Madan, Fellow, Foreign Policy; Director, The India Project, Brookings Institution; Adam Roberts, Political Correspondent, The Economist

This spring India returns to the polls for the world’s largest democratic exercise, with an estimated 850 million voters from Kashmir to Kerala determining which party controls the Lok Sabha. India’s growing economic and military strength, its strategic location, and its vast population mean that the election result will reverberate globally, and will be keenly observed in Beijing, Islamabad, and Washington. As Narendra Modi bids for a second term as Prime Minister, what issues are most likely to influence voters, and how do these vary by location, age, religion, or caste? How might this election shape India’s rise as a global power and its relations with the United States?

The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility and Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) are the largest international particle physics project ever built in the United States, hosted by Fermilab.

Are neutrinos the reason that the universe is filled with matter? How do they contribute to the formation of black holes?
