TWU’s “Science Faith and Human Flourishing” Initiative and the Canadian Scientific and Christian Affiliation, host, Livestream of Regent College Interface Series, “Beyond ‘Design’: Evolutionary Biology and a Theology of Preservation”
Free Public Lecture
Speaker: David Robinson, Regent College
Abstract: Appeals to an original "design" in nature have faced significant challenge from both evolutionary biology and Protestant theology since the nineteenth century.
This lecture adapts the two most enduring criticisms in order to articulate a theological ethics of preservation fit for the "Anthropocene"—our present age of reckoning with the irreparable effect of human designs on the biosphere.
