Dr Graeme Finlay provides delegates with a personal theological reflection on evolution. He refers to evolution as being an ‘ambiguous context’ depending on whether we are thinking about the the evolution of disease or our own biological evolution, which brings about the amazing diversity of life. Finlay is a Senior lecturer in molecular medicine based at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
In his lecture Dr Graeme Finlay (a Cancer Biologist) focuses on a new branch of study which has been comparing genomes of different species. He notes that it is an extraordinarily new development which has brought home to us the facts of our common descent with other species.
In this lecture Professor Tom Greggs considers the theological issues relating to time and eternity, he assesses the relationship of God to a created reality and analyses the inter-relationship of God’s freedom from and for creation in its temporal complexity.
