BIG QUESTION DEBATE - DVD. The distinguished
Australian Creation Scientist John Mackay was, in my humble
opinion, far away ahead in his creation views against
the resident Anglican theologian, Canon John Polkinghorne,
LEADING THEISTIC EVOLUTIONIST DEFEATED!
than 1100 people filled Liverpool Cathedral to hear Cambridge
University physicist and Canon Theological for the Cathedral,
Dr John Polkinghorne, debate Australian and International
Director of Creation Research, John Mackay. The topic:
“The Big Question—Is evolution compatible
with the Christian faith?"
As the UK’s leading theistic evolutionist, Dr John
Polkinghorne started the debate with his claim the universe
had evolved over the past 14 billion years.
Mackay quickly produced a copy of a 1990 lecture by Polkinghorne,
had stated the universe had evolved over 15 billion years.
It was fun to watch the audience react to Mackay’s
claim that evolution must be so wonderful it has enabled
John Polkinghorne to become 15 years older while the universe
became one billion years younger, and then use it to emphasise
the point that these vast billions of years are not facts
that disprove a literal reading of the scriptures, but
men’s feeble theories, which are constantly evolving
while the scriptures in Genesis remain firm.
“THE UK CHURCHMAN” NEWSPAPER reporting the
Liverpool Debate stated: "The controversial issue
of origins was given a theological airing in the cloistered
confines of Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral, on March 8th
The distinguished Australian Creation Scientist John Mackay
was, in my humble opinion, far away ahead in his creation
views against the resident Anglican theologian, Canon
John Polkinghorne, KBE. It was a great educational debate
but in my view Mackay's Biblical answers left the canon
(and he reminded me very much of Captain Mainwaring of
Dad's Army) spluttering in his hastily assembled answers.”

Hosted by popular BBC Commentator Roger Phillips, this
exciting debate was filmed professionally. It’s
one DVD you don’t want to miss. Faith in Theistic
Evolution over billions of years is one of the biggest
problems in evangelical churches throughout the world,
so your local church needs to see it as well!
