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.

He has debated leading anti-evolutionists, including Phillip Johnson, Michael Behe, and Jonathan Wells. With Johnson, he co-authored Darwinism Defeated? The Johnson-Lamoureux Debate on Biological Origins (1999). Lamoureux is also the author of Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution (2008), and a contributor in Four Views on the Historical Adam (2013). He holds three earned doctoral degrees—dentistry, theology, and biology.
