      Topic: (Three) Early Catholic Critics of Darwinism -
      Chesterton, Belloc, and Mivart
      Denyse O'Leary

      Thursday, September 16, 7:30 P.M.

      Otto Miller Hall
      Room 109
      Seattle Pacific University

      Amidst the broader debate over “theistic evolution,” many Catholics believe that Catholicism has no problem with Darwinism. But three Catholic contemporaries of Darwin would have strongly disagreed. Join us for an evening lecture with popular Canadian writer Denyse O’Leary, author of By Design or By Chance?, and co-author of The Spiritual Brain, who will discuss what G.K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, and St. George Mivart had to say about Darwin’s theory. This lecture is based on her chapter in the forthcoming book, God and Evolution: Protestants, Catholics, and Jews Explore Darwin’s Challenge to Faith.

      The event will be held on Thursday, September 16, at 7:30 p.m., in Otto Miller Hall, Room 109, at Seattle Pacific University, located at 3469 Third Avenue West, Seattle, Washington. Parking is available. For a map of the campus, please click here.

      Amazon.com Bio:
      Denyse O’Leary, born in Saskatchewan (1950), is a Toronto-based Canadian journalist and blogger who is the author of two award-winning books, Faith@Science (Winnipeg: J. Gordon Shillingford, 2001) and By Design or by Chance? (Minneapolis: Augsburg 2004, an overview of the intelligent design controversy). She is co-author of Montreal neuroscientist Mario Beauregard, on The Spiritual Brain: A neuroscientist’s case for the existence of the soul (Harper: 2007). Her current blogs are the Post-Darwinist, which supports By Design or by Chance? and the Mindful Hack, which supports The Spiritual Brain. She went into freelance journalism shortly after leaving university, having completed a four-year degree in Honours English Language and Literature. She has been a freelance journalist ever since, writing for a variety of publications. She has also done extensive work as a book editor and ghostwriter. Believing that many writers and editors do not deserve to
      starve, she developed and taught a course at George Brown College on how to maintain a business as a freelance editor and writer. She has taught writing, editing, and business practice for writers and editors for many years. O’Leary has two married daughters, and so far two granddaughters. She is a Roman Catholic who attends Holy Family Church in Toronto.
