Dr. John Walton will be giving a talk called “Science, Faith, Genesis: A Modern Conversation and an Ancient Text.”
April 10, 7:00 PM, 141 Loomis Lab, 1110 West Green St, Urbana IL, 61801
Many people in our time perceive a conflict between the Biblical account of creation in Genesis 1-2 and the modern scientific account of creation through evolution. This begs the question: does one have to reject the theory of evolution–and perhaps the findings of modern science more broadly–in order to affirm the Christian faith? Or conversely, does one have to reject the Christian faith in order to affirm evolution and modern science? Join us as Old Testament scholar Dr. John Walton discusses how he reads Genesis 1-2, and what relationship these ancient texts might have to modern science.
