“Adam and the Genome: What Our DNA Says (and Doesn’t Say) about Our Origins”

September 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

KCIC Auditorium, Acadia University, Wolfville, NS
Many Christians believe that humans are direct, supernatural creations who descend uniquely from a single ancestral couple. These convictions are under pressure from genomics evidence that humans evolved and descend from a large population, rather than from a single pair. How should Christians respond? This talk will explore the genomics evidence and consider its implications for evangelical faith and witness. Dennis Venema (Professor of Biology, Trinity Western University) writes and speaks widely on the intersection of evolutionary biology and Christian faith. He recently co-authored Adam and the Genome: Reading Scripture After Genetic Science (Brazos, 2017) with well-known NT scholar Scot McKnight. Hosted by the Nova Scotia chapter of the Canadian Scientific and Christian Affiliation (CSCA). Local Contact: Michael Robertson, michael.robertson@acadiau.ca | Info: csca.ca/nova-scotia.
