Creation Through New Eyes
Creation Weekend 2018 October 26 & 27
The Creation Science Association of Alberta is excited that our featured speaker for Creation Weekend 2018 is Dr. Gordon Wilson of New St. Andrews College in Moscow, Idaho. Dr. Wilson’s enthusiasm for biology is infectious and the topics which he will present are ones that are very relevant to our lives as Christians today.
Dr. Wilson has authored a recent textbook on foundational biology called The Riot and the Dance. The title references the beauty of creation in its cycles, diversity and relationships (the dance) while at the same time acknowledging the impact of natural evil, a result of God’s curse after the fall of man, which results in predators and diseases (the riot). Most recently Dr. Wilson is the narrator of a full length film of the same title as the book, The Riot and the Dance. The film is a cinematic celebration of creation in which he showcases beautifully intricate creatures of the world and the good and bad (but always interesting) interactions thereof.
Dr. Wilson began his career by studying insects (M.Sc. at University of Idaho) and later by studying the reproductive ecology of the Eastern Box Turtle (Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Public Policy from George Mason University in Virginia). Since then he has taught biology at Liberty University and since 2003 at New St. Andrews College (Moscow, Idaho) where he is Senior Fellow in Natural History. Dr. Wilson is active in the community of Christian biologists and in 2005 he hosted a conference on created kinds at New St. Andrews. So plan to come to Creation Weekend to be informed and delighted with Dr. Wilson’s lectures!
