The Creation vs. Evolution Debate
A talk by Professor Denis Lamoureux followed by a Q&A session.
SATURDAY, OCT 23 at 7 PM in EMERSON 210
Sponsored by the Harvard Ichthus, Harvard College Faith and Action, and Harvard College Alpha Omega
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). 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 has recently released Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution (2008) and I Love Jesus & I Accept Evolution (2009). He holds three earned doctoral degrees—dentistry, evangelical theology, and evolutionary biology. Lamoureux also shares his personal voyage from Christian to atheist, evolutionist to creationist and back again.
Richard Dawkins commented on Denis Lamoureux on The Agenda in 2008. Dawkins doesn’t seem too happy… Check out the video!
