Joel Duff
“Stories that Fossils Tell: Revealing the Diversity of God’s Creation through Time”

7:30 – 9:00 pm
Block Hall, Room 148, Neufeld Science Building

ABSTRACT: We are filled with wonder and as we gaze out into the seemingly infinite universe we marvel at the diversity and complexity of life on Earth today.  God’s creation seems to get larger and more amazing the more we study it.  But God’s creation extends not simply outward in space and inward in detail but also extends backward in time.  Fossils are one witness of that creation and they have some amazing stories to tell us about God’s boundless creative capacity.
