Don’t Leave College Without It…
Want to make complete sense of Genesis in light of modern science/evolution? Look no further. Upon finishing all of Denis O. Lamoureux’s DDS PhD PhD free online multimedia episodes in this intriguing course, I had to keep wiping grateful tears from my face — it made SO much sense of it all. It explained SO many questions that had nagged me (and most other Christians) my whole life!
For years, I actually had avoided Professor Lamoureux’s books and online content because I didn’t prefer some of his conclusions. But, now after hearing him out and seeing the evidence myself, I’m sold and oh how I wish I had looked there first!!!
It is now an online Coursera MOOC as Science and Religion 101, taught by renowned science/religion author, Professor Denis Lamoureux, DDS PhD PhD, is now available. This is a highly polished course that Dr. Lamoureux has taught over 65 times for over 20 yrs.
But, you don’t have to share his views to benefit greatly from the course. The purpose of the course is for students to be equipped to develop their OWN science/religion position.
The course builds on itself and it is important to start from the beginning and work your way through to the end. Professor Lamoureux’s says that the group discussions with other students in the class has proven to be invaluable for students. The is group discussion and the ability to interact with Dr. Lamoureux is available only in the paid options. My own science/religion paradigm shift was a lonely experience and how I wished I had had the discussion option years ago!

- Some of Denis Lamoureux’s key beliefs/convictions:
- Dr. Lamoureux is self-described as a born-again, evangelical, accepts miracles, ID & the Bible as Holy Spirit inspired (see slide 3) and signs the Apostle’s Creed (see slides 5 & 6 therein)
- Affirms the 10 commandments & Reality of Sin (see slides 5-8) and here (slide 10) and again here (slide 10)
- Dawkins vs. Lamoureux on Intelligent Design (slide 8)
Yes, public universities in the U.S. can accept this course as an Arts elective because it is a cross-cultural experience to a university that is in Canada, i.e., where they do not have the separation of church and state.
