FREE PUBLIC LECTURE with REFRESHMENTS

ABSTRACT: Are there only two positions on origins: either “evolution” or “creation”? This lecture is an introduction to professional terminology, science-religion dialogue, and various views on origins (young earth creation, progressive creation, evolutionary creation, deistic evolution, and atheistic evolution). Lecturer also shares his personal voyage in this debate.
SPEAKER: Denis O. Lamoureux is an Associate Professor of Science and Religion at St. Joseph’s College in the University of Alberta. He has debated leading anti-evolutionists, including Phillip Johnson, Michael Behe, and Jonathan Wells. With Johnson, he co-authored Darwinism Defeated? The Johnson-Lamoureux Debate on Biological Origins (1999). Lamoureux is also the author of Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution (2008), and a contributor in Four Views on the Historical Adam (2013). He holds three earned doctoral degrees—dentistry, theology, and biology.
