In this public lecture presented by the Canadian Scientific & Christian Affiliation, Dennis Venema, BioLogos Voices speaker, will be presenting his talk "Adam and the Genome: What our DNA Says (and Doesn't Say) about our Origins."
Abstract: "Many Christians believe that humans are direct, supernatural creations who did not result from an evolutionary process. Additionally, many Christians hold that all humans today descend uniquely from a single ancestral couple: Adam and Eve. These strongly-held convictions are now under pressure, namely from genomics evidence that indicates humans evolved and descend from a large population, rather than from a single pair. Is it possible that God used evolution as a means of creation? Or should Christians resist this evidence? What about intelligent design? This talk will explore the genomics evidence and consider its implications for evangelical faith and witness."
This event is FREE and open to the public.
