The Legacy of Reverend James Randolph Denton
Observatory (543 Union St., Brooklyn)
“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.
