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.

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’”

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.

Science Drove Me Away From Faith (And Helped Bring Me Back)

Science Drove Me Away From Faith (And Helped Bring Me Back)

As I investigate my newfound faith alongside my scientific knowledge, the Lord continues to reveal to me that scientific findings and the use of the scientific method are very good, just as his Word is also good.

Tim Keller on Original Sin, Atonement, and Evolution               (Part 2)

Tim Keller on Original Sin, Atonement, and Evolution           (Part 2)

Some may respond, “Even though we don’t think there was a literal Adam, we can accept the teaching of Genesis 2 and Romans 5, namely that all human beings have sinned and that through Christ we can be saved. So the basic Biblical teaching is intact, even if we do not accept the historicity of the story of Adam and Eve.” I think that assertion is too simplistic.

“Science Falsely So-Called”—The Infidelity of Natural History in the Early American Republic

“Science Falsely So-Called”—The Infidelity of Natural History in the Early American Republic

Natural history was a sensitive topic in the early nineteenth century. For many Americans, the nascent field of geology was an "enfant terrible," an obstreperous child shrilly shouting insults in the faces of Christians.

Substitutionary Atonement and Evolution, Part 2

Substitutionary Atonement and Evolution, Part 2

Emphasizing Jesus’ death is the wrong way to approach the atonement. Instead, we would be better served focusing on the incarnation.

Substitutionary Atonement and Evolution, Part 1

Macroevolution calls the Fall and the doctrine of original sin into question. Thus, evolution poses a significant challenge to substitutionary atonement.
