      I plan to attend thsee seminars. The speakers include
      Carl Grant and Mike Dodaro, who are friends that have
      attended our creation seminars. Their seminar purports
      to relate Darwinism, music history of Faust, and
      Christian Theology. Carl Grant gave a well-received
      talk for my luncheon group last year on the philosophy
      of physics, supporting intelligent design theism.

      Charles Darwin���s Evolution of the Species was
      published in 1859, the same year as the premier of
      Charles Gounod���s opera Faust. This coincidence is
      remarkable because Evolution of the Species and the
      Faust legend are representative of entirely separate
      and antithetical world views. Gounod���s opera, which
      made the composer the most famous musician in Paris,
      retells the tale of an aging philosopher who sells his
      soul to the devil for youth and love. It is a story of
      damnation and redemption told in then popular idioms
      of Christian theology. The philosophical underpinnings
      of Darwin���s Evolution of the Species are
      materialistic and irreligious. In this contrast we
      find the elements of the culture war raging 150 years
      later in American society.

      Trinity Parish church was organized in 1865 just six
      years after Faust and Evolution of the Species.
      Ensuing generations have seen the divergence of world
      views insipient in these works. In two Sunday
      afternoons, Jan 16th and February 20th, we will
      explore some continuing cultural conflicts through
      discussion of art and philosophy in the early stages
      of these conflicts.
