The BioLogos Forum is designed to foster a serious and comprehensive discussion of Christian faith and the sciences. We believe that charitable engagement of different perspectives within the Church helps sharpen our thinking and deepen our commitment to the truth that is hidden in Christ. So while many of the articles and videos under the distinctive Forum banner come from BioLogos staff and Senior Fellows, we feature a range of voices, including those that disagree with us and with each other. Unless otherwise noted, views expressed are those of the authors, not necessarily of The BioLogos Foundation. You can read more about what we believe here, and join the conversation in the comments section at the end of each post.

Ecclesiastes, Education, and the Pursuit of Meaning

Ecclesiastes, Education, and the Pursuit of Meaning

If you read Ecclesiastes carefully, Solomon is not saying that knowledge and learning are bad; he’s saying they’re incomplete.

Evolution and the “Original Sins” (Part 1)

What is needed for atonement to take place is elimination of trust in false gods and creation of trust in the true God.

Neanderthals, humans and interbreeding: old bones, new evidence

Neanderthals, humans and interbreeding: old bones, new evidence

For Evangelicals interested in the evolutionary history of our species, the results of a new study are a “smoking gun” for human/Neanderthal interbreeding.

Why God Works Slowly

Why God Works Slowly

Like a master craftsman, the God who creates over billions of years is not in a hurry. Meticulous care goes into every creative action.

Addressing Our Poverty of Perspective

Addressing Our Poverty of Perspective

I am growing in my appreciation for a diversity of ears to hear Scripture and a diversity of cultures to interpret God's call on our lives.

Evolution, Atonement, and the Redemption of All Creation (Part 2)

Evolution, Atonement, and the Redemption of All Creation (Part 2)

Once we view animals as having in some sense moral agency, then theories of atonement need to be widened and stretched to include creaturely ills.

Evolution, Atonement, and the Redemption of All Creation (Part 1)

Evolution, Atonement, and the Redemption of All Creation (Part 1)

The point is that the ‘Fall’ reaches backward into the evolutionary history of the world, as well as pointing forward as a shadow on human history.

Science, Satan, and the Complications of Univocity: Cotton Mather’s Role in the History of Science

Science, Satan, and the Complications of Univocity: Cotton Mather’s Role in the History of Science

The pursuit of science, for Cotton Mather, is not simply a matter for humans in a univocal relationship with God. Satan is an active and persistent deceiver.

The Pope is Right: Creation Care Needs Both Scripture and Science

The Pope is Right: Creation Care Needs Both Scripture and Science

We applaud Pope Francis for rejecting the dichotomy between “secular” and “spiritual” on the topic of creation care, because good science and vibrant faith are natural partners—both on this topic and every other.

The Relationship between Science and Religion According to “Laudato Si’”

Science may find a solution to our current social and ecological ills, but religion will be needed to actually make that solution happen.

A Creation Mandate for a New ‘Evangelicals and Catholics Together’

Like other aspects of Francis’ papacy, this encyclical is sure to draw attention to ways in which Christians cooperate on the basis of their shared understanding of creation.

Why All Christians Should Heed Pope Francis’ Call to “Care for Our Common Home”

Why All Christians Should Heed Pope Francis’ Call to “Care for Our Common Home”

In the case of climate change, how do we express God's love? Through acknowledging the reality of the issue; supporting action to help others who are being harmed, and taking our responsibility to care for God’s creation seriously.

Adam, Eve and human population genetics, Part 14: addressing critics - Poythress, population genomics, and locating the historical Adam (conclusion)

Adam, Eve and human population genetics, Part 14: addressing critics - Poythress, population genomics, and locating the historical Adam (conclusion)

In raising the possibility of miracles, Poythress is effectively claiming that no conclusion of genetics is sure, because there may be, unknown to us, exceptional acts of God at play that render the evidence unintelligible to the methods of science.
