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.

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

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.

From the Archives: What I Wish My Pastor Knew About…The Life of a Scientist, Part 1

From the Archives: What I Wish My Pastor Knew About…The Life of a Scientist, Part 1

...there are inevitable limits to what any pastor can do to constructively integrate the knowledge content of science — so vast and rapidly expanding that even scientists cannot pretend to be expert in anything but a tiny portion — with the content of Christian faith. But there is another way to approach faith and science which I believe might well be more within reach of most pastors, and more essential to their job description than being deeply literate in the latest scientific discoveries and theories...

Gene Editing in Human Embryos

Gene Editing in Human Embryos

We, both in the church and in broader society, need to think carefully together about how new technology should be used, even as we give thanks for the fruitfulness of modern science, medicine, and technology.

What is Evolution?

What is Evolution?

The word evolution can be used in many ways, but in biology, it means descent with modification. In other words, small modifications occur at the genetic level (i.e. in DNA) when a new generation descends from its parents. Over many generations these modifications can result in significant differences from the ancestral population.

“Natural” and “Supernatural” are Modern Categories, Not Biblical Ones

“Natural” and “Supernatural” are Modern Categories, Not Biblical Ones

When we make distinctions between natural and supernatural activity in Scripture, not only do we push our modern categories into the Bible, but we also limit God’s action.

The more research that is done on DNA, the more evidence we find that all life is related.
