Dr. Myron Penner

With Response from CSCA member Dr. Judy Toronchuk (Trinity Western University, Psychology)

ABSTRACT: Some think that naturalistic explanations for religious beliefs 'explain God away.' Others think that science in general and evolution in particular has nothing to offer believers in understanding their faith. Dr. Penner argues that both these views are mistaken--come find out why (bring your questions, ideas, and a friend)!

Myron Penner began working at TWU in 2005. He completed his Ph.D. in Philosophy from Purdue University in 2007. Myron's primary research areas are epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of religion but also has interests in philosophy of science and twentieth-century analytic philosophy.
