Everyday Conversations about Evolution 


Evolution is a topic for science geeks and religious people who like to argue.

…At least, that’s how many Christians feel. 

Instead, evolution is actually a unique topic that can make for productive and pleasant (Yes! It’s possible) worldview conversations. In this session, Gordon will simplify the debate to a few essential questions. Evolution is a topic that anyone can discuss… if they know the right questions to ask.

Growing up in a small town, Gordon didn't face a lot of opposition to his faith.

And then he went to university.

The constant  challenges he met there drove him to search for answers, and he discovered that Christianity stood up to close scrutiny. He also learned that, in order to share his faith, it wasn't enough just to have the right answers. The right answers need to be matched with a tactful manner and a gentle, loving attitude.

He earned a Bachelor of Arts, with a major in philosophy, from the University of British Columbia, and is currently working on his master’s degree in philosophy at the University of Calgary.
