Well-known "Evolutionary Theologian" to make a mid-state appearance
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- A well-known minister, author and Ted Talk alum, who refers to himself as an “Evolutionary Theologian” will make a mid-state appearance on Thursday.
The Reverend Michael Dowd is the founder of evolutionarychristianity.com and the author of the best selling book Thank God for Evolution.
This Thursday evening the Middle Tennessee State University Science and Spirituality Group will host Michael Dowd for a presentation in Murfreesboro.
Gary Wulfsberg is an emeritus professor of Chemistry at MTSU and a spokesperson for the Science and Spirituality Group. He says science and faith can be complimentary.
“What science brings to a person of faith is perhaps a check on your faith, perhaps a boost in your faith by evidence that comes from more than just what you yourself have read or subscribe to. So it can strengthen your faith.”
The Rev. Michael Dowd at Unity Church of Life, located at 130 S. Cannon Ave. near the old train station in Murfreesboro. His presentation begins at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
