LEWISTON — Perspectives on intelligent design theory will be explored at Lifetree Café during a special program titled, “In the Beginning … An Atheist Professor Considers Intelligent Design.”

The program will be held at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 26, at South Lewiston Baptist Church, 1919 Lisbon Road.

The program will feature a filmed interview with Dr. Bradley Monton, a former philosophy of physics professor and self-professed atheist. Monton’s controversial view on the plausibility of intelligent design has brought criticism from the academic and atheist communities.

“I’m an atheist ultimately, and I don’t think that God exists,” Monton said. “But I’m not certain of my atheism, and intelligent-design arguments make me less certain.”

During the program, participants will have an opportunity to discuss the plausibility of several intelligent design theories.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting.
