LA CROSSE, Wis. – Explore the topics of evolution and religion through the context of literature as Monsignor Bernard McGarty, S.T.D., presents “Evolution, God, and Darwin” at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30 in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre. 

The theory of biological evolution has been a flash point for controversy since Charles Darwin published his work, The Origin of Species, in 1836. To many, the subject represents a head-on collision between science and religion. Msgr. McGarty will provide an original hypothesis and will examine if this is indeed the case. To explain both sides of the issue, Msgr. McGarty will use literature as a context for his presentation. 

The event is free and open to the public. 

Msgr. McGarty is Viterbo’s Visiting Scholar in Ecumenical Studies. He has presented well-attended lectures covering Islam and other faith traditions, the life of St. Paul, the separation of church and state, and he was the playwright of the dramatic production, Who is the Greatest American?
