i About the BioLogos Forum

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.

Belief in God in a World Explained by Science, part 2

Belief in God in a World Explained by Science, part 2

When some scientists or news reporters trumpet the latest scientific discoveries as rendering belief in God obsolete, I say that I’m already an atheist with respect to the kind of god they’re talking about. That god is just one of the causes in and amongst the otherwise natural causes.

Belief in God in a World Explained by Science, part 1

I make the daring wager that ultimate reality is personal in nature. It’s possible to accept the evidence for theism or for naturalism without completely flouting our rational duty. From inside Christian theism, though, I find it to be a more satisfying outlook on life.

Evolution Basics: At the Frontiers of Evolution, Part 2: Abiogenesis and the Question of Naturalism

But Dennis, you might say, aren’t you assuming that life had a “natural” origin? Aren’t you discounting the possibility that God might have brought life about through supernatural means? Haven’t you capitulated to “naturalism” from the outset?

Seeing God in Everyday Work, Part 2

Seeing God in Everyday Work, Part 2

Christians disagree about the age of the earth and evolution – I know we don’t all agree in this room! But you know what? We all agree that the God of the Bible created this planet. That’s what unity in Christ means – not uniformity that we all agree on everything, but unity where we share the same core beliefs in spite of those disagreements.

Seeing God in Everyday Work, Part 1

Bethel was where I learned that the science that I loved could be a Christian calling. Before that I had a vague notion that truly serving God meant being a pastor or missionary. Here I learned that in every profession you can love God with heart and soul and mind and strength, studying God’s world with your mind and caring for it with your hands.

The Christian Reformed Church votes to support scholarship on human origins

The Christian Reformed Church votes to support scholarship on human origins

We should celebrate the many times that our churches and colleges encourage scholarship. I saw several delegates at Synod stand up and speak directly about the importance of supporting scholars who engage the science and religion dialogue. The recent Synod decision was a move in the right direction.

A Christian Response to Tooby and Cosmides’ “Evolutionary Psychology: A Primer”

EP focuses on the cognitive proficiencies shared by all humans regardless of culture, race, nationality, education level, socioeconomic status, religious affiliation, or marital status. In Christian terms, EP focuses, we offer, on our common grace—on the wondrous talents and gifts God has bestowed humanity.

BioLogos Basics Video #4: How did God create the ingredients for life?

God could have created a fertile planet miraculously in an instant, but when we look carefully at the physical evidence, it appears that the earth has a longer history as part of the universe.

Defending the Truth or Building a Stumbling Block?

Defending the Truth or Building a Stumbling Block?

While my work was not directly focused on evolution, the topic was everywhere around me, just as creationism was part of the culture of the South where I grew up. Confronted almost daily by my ignorance of the science of evolution, I decided to embark on a study. I was confident that if Christianity were true, it could withstand even the toughest questions.

The Origin of Modern Humans: The Fossil Evidence, Part 2

The amount of effort that has been placed on European palaeoanthropology in the last 200 years has resulted in a wealth of hominin material relating to the appearance of modern humans that is unparalleled in the rest of the Old World, so much so that it would be impossible to describe even half of the most important finds in this review.

Evolution Basics: At the Frontiers of Evolution, Part 1: Frontier Science, Abiogenesis and Christian Apologetics

It is not a surprise that a scientific theory will address areas that are poorly understood: indeed, it is expected that theories, as they expand, will naturally have a frontier where the science is far from settled.
