Beyond Conflict: Evolution, Science and God

Jointly hosted by New Zealand Christians in Science and the University of Otago, and generously supported by the Templeton World Charity Inc., this conference will be examining the following questions:

  • What are some of the more recent understandings of evolutionary dynamics?
  • How did religious people in Russia and non-Western countries conceive of evolution?
  • What is the history of evolution’s reception in New Zealand?
  • How is theology impacted by an understanding of evolutionary altruism?
  • How can we understand Jesus’ healing?
  • How does a connection to nature in ecology help to overcome a sense of conflict between science and faith?
  • How does Divine Providence work with evolutionary mechanisms?
