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.

What is a Literal Reading?: Lessons from Gregory of Nyssa and Augustine

What is a Literal Reading?: Lessons from Gregory of Nyssa and Augustine

A very important way of avoiding a myopic understanding of our own theories and conclusions is to examine how our forebears in the faith understood things.

From the Archives: Recovering the Doctrine of Creation: A Theological View of Science, Part 1

God rules over all natural processes! Therefore, anything a scientist says about processes in creation can only be describing something that is sustained by God and subject to His sovereignty.

Does the “Fine-Tuning” of the Universe Lead Us to God?

Does the “Fine-Tuning” of the Universe Lead Us to God?

Dr. Polkinghorne looks at two explanations for the so-called "fine-tuning" principle -- the multiverse theory and the existence of a divine intelligence -- and explains why natural theology alone is not sufficient to make the case for a God who interacts and cares for his creation.

Divine Ingenuity and Divine Hiddenness

Divine Ingenuity and Divine Hiddenness

Divine Hiddenness is the claim that our public evidence is strong enough to make Christian faith reasonable, but not strong enough to make it compelling.

We as Christians cannot claim that the world belongs to God and at the same time distrust the systematic study of it.

We need safe places in which to raise the complex issues of submitting wholeheartedly to the authority of God’s Word in the Scriptures while wrestling with the important findings and perspectives in the natural sciences.

From the Archives: Miracles and Science, Part 5

By getting rid of the miracle stories in the Bible, Bultmann and his followers hoped to make the Christian story more palatable to modern man. Although I recognize the emotional weight of this sentiment, I am not convinced that it is an intellectually coherent approach, mainly for reasons of self-consistency.

Science, as well as tools from historical disciplines, can be brought to bear on biblical miracles. For example they can be split into those that are examples of providential timing (type i miracles) and those that can only be viewed as directly violating physical cause-effect relationships (type ii miracles).

How can we then judge whether or not the miracles of the Bible are reliable? Since the word miracle has taken on so many different meanings, it is important to first examine the biblical language.

Rather than attempt to come up with a careful and precise definition of science or scientific practice, I will instead resort to a favorite metaphor of mine. It originates with one of my former teachers at Cornell who describes science as a “tapestry” woven together from many threads...

"Unbelievable, isn’t it, that there are still students at this university who believe in stories from the Bible", said Martin, an older colleague of mine at Oxford University. "But Martin, I answered, their faith probably doesn’t differ much from mine." I can still see his face go pale while he nearly choked.
