Dennis Venema, BioLogos Voices speaker, will present "Adam and the Genome: What our DNA Says (And Doesn't Say) about our Origins" as a part of Ross Hastings and Ashely Moyse's "Science & Theology" Course at Regent College. This lecture will be followed by a discussion with BioLogos Advisory Council Member Ross Hastings. Guests are welcome at this event.
Synopsis: "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."
