Description: Most people assume that the concept of evolution began with Charles Darwin. But Darwin merely popularized and provided a supposedly scientific explanation for evolution, an idea that has been around for a long time. A thread of evolutionary thought may be traced back to the earliest recorded civilization. In this presentation we trace evolutionism back to its early beginnings and show how it influenced Greek philosophy, which in turn affected Western culture from the Renaissance down to the present, and became deeply rooted in our culture today.
Speaker: Bruce Barton has degrees in meteorology and theology, with studies in engineering and graduate work in atmospheric sciences.
