Scholars to Deliver Talk on Catholicism and Evolution

December 2, 2014

darwin_11There will be a talk on “Catholicism and Evolution” presented by Mr. Hugh Owen and Dr. Joseph Strada of the Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation in St. Kilian’s Café on Wednesday, Dec. 3, at 6:30 pm.

According to its website, the Kolbe Center aims to equip Catholic evangelists with a decisive advantage in the third millennium by rooting their apologetics in the true Catholic doctrine of creation, supported by sound arguments from theology, philosophy, and natural science. Once persuaded of the bankruptcy of molecules-to-man evolution and of the reasonableness of special creation, the practical atheist will be able to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the claims of the Catholic Church.

Dr. Strada has an impressive scientific background. He has a Ph.D. in Aeronautical Engineering and Mathematics, Naval Postgraduate School Engineer’s Degree in Aeronautical Engineering, Naval Postgraduate School, M.S. in Aeronautical Engineering and Mathematics, Naval Postgraduate School, and a B.S. in Mathematics, Villanova University.

Mr. Owen is the convert son of Sir David Owen, a former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations and Secretary General of International Planned Parenthood Federation. Hugh attended Princeton University where, at the age of 18, he was baptized, confirmed and made his first Holy Communion in the Princeton University Chapel on the Easter Vigil, in 1972. He has written numerous books and articles on Catholic and secular topics. His books and articles have been published by the Catholic Distance University, Human Life International, Seton Home School, The Apostolate for Family Consecration, Latin Mass Magazine, and many other publications.

All are invited to attend this insightful event.
