‘God, Evolution and the Power of Love’ topic of November lecture at UNG

Mountain Top Lectures and the University of North Georgia are honored to present “God, Evolution and the Power of Love,” a lecture by the esteemed Dr. Ilia Delio on Saturday Nov. 4, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. The lecture will take place in the Hoag auditorium of UNG. Tickets are $60 in advance or $70 at the door and may be purchased on line at https://mountaintoplectures.org.

Ilia Delio is a Franciscan Sister of Washington, D.C. and holds the Josephine C. Connelly Endowed Chair in Theology at Villanova University. She holds undergraduate and master’s degrees in biology, a doctorate in pharmacology, followed with a specialization in spinal cord physiology. Her post-doctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins studied the pathology of Lou Gehrig’s disease / ALS. In 1984, she joined the Carmelite order. Later she joined the Franciscans who supported her pursuit of her second doctorate in historical theology.

She is the recipient of a Templeton Course in Science and Religion award and the author of 17 books including The Unbearable Wholeness of Being. She lectures nationally and internationally on topics including evolution, artificial intelligence, consciousness, culture and religion.

Dr. Delio’s work in Science and Religion is influenced by the Jesuit scientist, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955). Like Teilhard, she sees the essential need to integrate science and religion toward a new way of thinking, consonant with evolution. Her research interests focus on exploring divine action in a world of evolution, complexity, emergence, quantum reality and artificial intelligence. She continues to lecture and write on religion and evolution, catholicity, cosmology and culture, artificial intelligence and human becoming.
