The God of evolution? Animal suffering in nature

Venue: Clore Old Library, University Church, High Street, Oxford, OX1 4BJ

In 1859, Charles Darwin proposed a radical new idea for how life evolves through natural selection. The natural world is competitive, violent and careless of the suffering it produces, apparently at odds with the Christian idea of an omnipotent, good God. In this group discussion, Bethany Sollereder will explore the problem of animal suffering in nature and how the implications of evolution can be reconciled with a theological understanding of God as creator.
