How did humans come about? Some have a religious answer, that God made humans from scratch (not descended from other animals). Evolutionists believe the opposite; that all life is related on Earth through birth, and that humans came from other animals through physical descent. The Christian perspective on this topic will be given by John Breckenridge from Evergreen, and Bernie Dehler, Westside Science & Religion Discussion, will give the atheist viewpoint. Bernie argues that modern science (evolution) is clear that there is no ‘first human’ and therefore there was no first humans such as Adam and Eve. John will explain why he thinks Dehler’s conclusion is not reasonable, and that it is very reasonable to believe in “first humans.”
Everyone is invited! This can be a friendly event for different groups to meet each other. A place for Christians to get to know atheists; and atheists to get to know Christians. And everyone else is also invited; all belief systems (Muslim, Hindu, etc.). We will show that conversations with people of radically different ideas can be both fun and friendly.
