Creation Club meetings are held about once a term exploring various aspects of the creation v evolution debate and their implications.
The last Creation Club meeting took place on Sunday May 13th at 4:30pm and was the first to be hosted by Dr. Chris Ashton. Chris has taken over the baton from John Peet and we look forward to many stimulating sessions to come.
The Title of Chris' first session was 'Evolution and Creation'. What is evolution? Why is there a such a conflict between science and faith on how humanity came to be? If science can’t explain it does it mean that “God did it?” Is creation a myth, poetry, a moral story, infallible truth or something else?
Is evolution as clear cut as we think?
Evolution is held as one of the main elements in the science v. faith debate. Evolution and the bible are irreconcilable so therefore Christians must be anti-science!
This presentation aimed to bring a brief background to the conflict and to present an overview of both the biblical account of life and current evolutionary thinking. Follow the instructions below to download an audio recording of the session.
