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.

The Wax Adam: Historical, Biographical, Archetypal, or Literary?

The Wax Adam: Historical, Biographical, Archetypal, or Literary?

The history of interpretation of Adam from Genesis to the 1st Century reveals a bold and astonishing diversity in which the authors made of Adam what they needed of Adam.

BioLogos Basics Video #7: How Evolution Works - Part 2

Was Genesis 1-11 Intended to Reflect Accurate History?

Was Genesis 1-11 Intended to Reflect Accurate History?

Genesis frequently references events and places that the writer(s) (and listeners/readers) thought of as real, but its message does not rely on its pinpoint historical accuracy.

Is Genesis 1-11 a Collection of Myths?

This word "myth" is frequently thrown around in debates about science and the Scriptures, but is it a helpful word to describe the stories of early Genesis?

From the Archives: Evolution as a Scientific Theory

From the Archives: Evolution as a Scientific Theory

In common English usage, “theory” means something like “guess” or “hunch”. In science, however, a theory is an idea that has stood the test of time.

An Unexpected Adventure: Roger Wiens on Faith, Science, and Mars

Being a scientist in the Christian community, now that’s a little difficult at times. Many Christians have stubbornly resisted understanding the vastness of God’s creation in time and space.

Chance or Necessity in the Origin of Life?

Chance or Necessity in the Origin of Life?

I think the deepest question is "chance vs. necessity" in the origin of life. Not so much whether life was bound to occur...but more the question, "given that life started, was it destined to look the way we find it?"

What does the fossil record show?

What does the fossil record show?

Though the fossil record does not include every plant and animal that ever lived, it provides substantial evidence for the common descent of life via evolution. The fossil record is a remarkable gift for the study of nature.
