What’s Faith Got to Do With It?: Young Earth Creationism and the Promise of Certainty | Righting America

by Susan and William Trollinger

As part of the 2023-2024 Science and Faith Series here at the University of Dayton, we are giving this presentation on Wednesday, February 28, 4.00-5.00 pm in Sears Recital Hall, Jesse Phillips Humanities Center

The event is free, and all are invited. If you are coming from off campus, please use Lot C off of Evanston; stop by the parking booth, get a visitor’s tag, and ask for directions to Humanities.

And here is a brief summary of our talk:

Contrary to what one might imagine, the proponents of Biblical creationism do not appeal to religious faith. Instead, they proclaim Genesis 1 as a historically and scientifically true description of Creation by the only “eyewitness” (God), a description that is clearly substantiated by genuine, empirical science (as opposed to the false, biased science of evolutionists). That is to say, young Earth creationists possess the certainty of Truth.

If you are in the area, we would love to see you next Wednesday!
