Evolution Weekend 2008

Evolution Weekend 2008 November 27, 2007

Evolution Weekend is an opportunity for serious discussion and reflection on the relationship between religion and science. One important goal is to elevate the quality of the discussion on this critical topic – to move beyond soundbytes. A second critical goal is to demonstrate that religious people from many faiths and locations understand that evolution is sound science and poses no problems for their faith. Finally, as with The Clergy Letter itself, which has now been signed by more than 11,000 members of the Christian clergy in the United States, Evolution Weekend makes it clear that those claiming that people must choose between religion and science are creating a false dichotomy.

Through sermons, discussion groups, meaningful conversations and seminars, the leaders listed below will show that religion and science are not adversaries.

If your congregation would like to join this international event in 2008, please send a note to mz@butler.edu. We welcome your participation.

I’d also like to propose that bloggers who regularly write about religion (and perhaps even those that do not) devote a post to the subject that weekend.
