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.

Interpreting Adam: An Interview with Denis Lamoureux, Part 2

Interpreting Adam: An Interview with Denis Lamoureux, Part 2

I suspect it will take a generation for us to come to terms with biological evolution, in particular human evolution. If there is one thing we can learn from the history of science it is that the church is always cautious in embracing new scientific ideas, but in the end she is able to accommodate them into her theology, without any loss or damage to the inerrant spiritual truths of the Bible.

BioLogos in One Sentence

This list didn’t come from a boring discussion of “what should be our core values.” Rather, each of these commitments came up repeatedly in our discussions of what BioLogos is all about.

How To Talk to Family About Evolution

How To Talk to Family About Evolution

…because accepting evolutionary theory for the first time does require us to reconsider and reframe other aspects of our cultural and spiritual beliefs, we must be more caring about the way we interact with those who remain in disagreement with us.

Seeing God in the Stars

Seeing God in the Stars

As a Christian, I can’t think of a more beautiful process for God to have blessed the production of the elements that we need for life than the beauty of stars. In fact, we are told that we shine like stars in the universe.

“The Language of God” Book Club – Chapters 1 & 2

Collins poses, as the central question of his book: “In this modern era of cosmology, evolution, and the human genome, is there still the possibility of a richly satisfying harmony between the scientific and spiritual worldviews?”

Evolution Basics: From Primate to Human, Part 2

The appreciation of the hominin group as a bushy tree rather than a ladder would elude scientists for some time, to say nothing of the general public.

From the Dust: Paul’s Adam

From the Dust: Paul’s Adam

With From the Dust, it was our goal to help Christians see the complexity of the issues raised by modern science, as well as help them to courageously engage with the theological conversations happening within the sphere of Christian culture today.

To Tame the World: What terrifies us about reality pushes us toward its Creator.

To Tame the World: What terrifies us about reality pushes us toward its Creator.

We can understand why man, modern man in particular, would like to mop the floors and bleach the walls. We might not be able to tame reality, but we can tame our perception of reality. We intellectualize in order to feel in control.

The affirmation of genuine chance and randomness in the universe does not rob the universe of meaning and purpose.

Long Life Spans in Genesis

Long Life Spans in Genesis

“If God wanted to make Methuselah live to be 969 years old, we certainly believe that God could intervene in the natural order of things and make that happen. The question rather—as it should be for all biblical interpretation—is whether that is really the message of the text.”

Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye

Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye

“We expect that we’ll agree with most of what Bill Nye will say about the science of evolution. Fossils, genetics, and other disciplines give compelling evidence that all life on earth is related and developed over a very long time through natural processes. But we’re also brothers and sisters in Christ with Ken Ham.”

Trying all Things: The Importance of Experience in Scriptural Interpretation

“All of a sudden, it was possible to grant a text deep authority (a ‘high view of scripture’ we say) while discounting neither our own experience, nor the historical experience of those writing, compiling, editing that same text. To put it differently, all of a sudden, history mattered—the history of the text itself, and the history of our interpretations of a text.”

The Father of Intelligent Design

“There was no better way, in Boyle’s opinion, to ‘give us so great a Wonder and Veneration’ for God’s wisdom, than ‘by Knowing and Considering the Admirable Contrivance of the Particular Productions of that Immense Wisdom,’ by which he mainly meant the exquisitely fashioned parts of animals both great and small.”
