Biological Evolutionism

by Constantine Cavarnos

34 pp.

Dr. Cavarnos, a renowned Orthodox scholar and thinker, discusses the philosophical and scientific foundations of the theory of evolution, with particular reference to Jean-Baptiste Lamarck and Charles Darwin, and demonstrates from the Holy Fathers, including the great twentieth-century Father, Saint Nectarios of Pentapolis, that evolutionism serves only to dehumanize man and deprive him of his innate longing for divinization.
