Beyond the "Evolution" vs. "Creation" Debate

Please join us for this special presentation:

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.

Endorsement by the Chair of Biology at the University of Alberta
"Dr. Michael Caldwell, Professor and Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences, would like to personally invite all interested students to attend this seminar. Dr. Lamoureux has been presenting his “Beyond…” lecture since 1994, a lecture series and project that eventually led to the creation of his current appointment in “Science and Religion” at St. Joseph’s College. The Department of Biological Sciences, in the spirit of academic exchange, is pleased to continue supporting this joint effort with St. Joseph’s College and Dr. Lamoureux."
