Beyond the
"Evolution" vs. "Creation" Debate

 

Abstract
Are there only two positions on origins: either “evolution” or “creation”? This lecture is an introduction to professional terminology, science-religion dialogue, and various views on origins (young earth creation, progressive creation, evolutionary creation, deistic evolution, and atheistic evolution). Lecturer also shares his personal voyage in this debate.
