Willimantic, Conn. - "And God said, "Let there be evolution!": Reconciling the Book of Genesis, the Qur'an, and the Theory of Evolution," a book authored by Eastern Connecticut State University Chemistry Professor Charles Wynn, will kick off Eastern's 2011 Fall University Hour Series from 3 to 4 p. m. on Sept. 7 in the Student Center Theatre. The public is invited. Admission is free.
The book deals with the continuing conflict between scientific understandings and religious beliefs. In the book, David Kay, a scientist and conservative rabbi in Florida; Howard Van Till, professor emeritus of physics and astronomy at Calvin College in Michigan and devout Christian; and pediatrician T.O. Shanavas, a Muslim living in Michigan, present scientific evidence in support of Darwin's Theory of Evolution, and then explain how they reconcile that theory with their respective religions. Each concludes that accepting evolution does not require abandoning one's faith.
"And God said, "Let there be evolution!": Reconciling the Book of Genesis, the Qur'an, and the Theory of Evolution," has recently been published in trade paperback, Kindle and Nook by All Things That Matter Press. This is the fourth in a quartet of books about science, pseudoscience and religion by Charles M. Wynn Sr., and Arthur W. Wiggins. It is available at AllThingsThatMatterPress.com or Amazon.com.
