Charles Darwin and Human Nature – should Christian Theology care?

June 9th, 2008 · Posted by Hugo · 3 Comments

A friend just invited me to a talk organised by an academically-inclined study group at his church tomorrow afternoon. Details as follows:

Subject: Charles Darwin and Human Nature – should Christian Theology care?
Speaker: Prof Wentzel van Huyssteen (Princeton Theological seminar, USA)
Time: 17:00, 10 Junie
Place: Kerksentrum, Uniepark (Stellenbosch, South Africa)

The talk will be in English. From Wentzel van Huyssteen’s biography, his Ph.D is in Philosophical Theology. Scan his biography for a better idea of where he stands.

If I can find the place, I will probably go listen. (I’m not exactly sure where it is yet.)

    I will write a post on it. Or that’s the plan at least. I will primarily focus on what his talk would mean for “cross cultural” understanding. (Something on what science-informed theology looks like, and what the implications of his talk would mean for the theist’s opinion of a non-theist and vice versa.)

    Something like that.

    […] of “right” and “wrong”. (Oh, and this was also explained nicely in a talk I attended at a Dutch Reformed church — and I still hope to write a little about that some time.) Right, so that takes care of […]
