Saturday, February 16th: The Legacy of Reverend James Randolph Denton

The Legacy of Reverend James Randolph Denton
Observatory (543 Union St., Brooklyn)
8pm
$5

“The Legacy of Reverend James Randolph Denton” presents the theological scholarship of the founder of The Association for Creative Zoology, a nearly century-old organization advocating for creation science. The Association was present in Dayton, Tennessee in 1925 during the trial of John Scopes, a high school science teacher charged with teaching evolution in violation of a recently enacted state law.

The lecture will include Reverend Denton’s writings and publications, many of which are part of the Hokes Archives. These include Rare Zoological Specimens, a large lithographic book that depicts animals which support Denton’s claim that God uses Broocollage techniques, or “zoomorphic juncture” to create new animals. He cites the Duck-Billed Platypus as a living example of this principle. The presentation will also include taxidermy and fossil evidence in support of Denton’s claims.
