Complicated, Eh? by jamica1 as featured in March 2011’s Focus Friday

Short notice! The UBCO Creation Club presents “Be it resolved that the genetic and fossil evidence supports the evolution model and refutes the biblical creation model” Dan Ryder vs. John Mackay.

The debate will be between John Mackay the Australian Director of Creation Research and Dan Ryder Professor of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia Okanagan.

Moderator: Chris Walker (Host, Daybreak, CBC Radio)

John MacKay purports to show how the scientific evidence supports a biblical creation model rather than an evolution model. John has debated notable “evolutionists” including Dr. Eugenie Scott (National Centre for Science Education), Dr. Christopher DiCarlo (Centre for Inquiry Canada), and Dr. John Polkinghorne (UK’s leading theistic “evolutionist”).

Dan Ryder has a Master of Arts from the University of Calgary in Philosophy and Neuroscience and a PhD from the University of North Carolina in Philosophy. Areas of research include: philosophy of mind and cognitive science, theoretical neuroscience, metaphysics, and philosophy of science. Dan is also a member of Centre For Inquiry Okanagan.
