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.

The Genesis Rock

The Genesis Rock

The story of the Genesis Rock reminds us of how biblical and scientific accounts, despite their different purviews and purposes, remain inexorably linked in our understanding of origins.

Christ, Trinity, and Creation, Part 2

Christ, Trinity, and Creation, Part 2

Christ is the reason the natural sciences work: he is the source of the laws of nature, and he contains and underpins the natural sciences. Christ is the pattern for all created things, while the Spirit – his presence in the created world – breathes the divine fire into the equations.

Christ, Trinity, and Creation, Part 1

Christ, Trinity, and Creation, Part 1

The biblical texts of creation’s praise speak of the whole of creation as imbued with the presence of the Holy Spirit; they give non-human reality a gifted theological significance of its own (a grace) which it can’t have in deism. Realization of this point has led many working in the science-religion field to identify the immanent work of the Spirit with evolutionary sciences, with emergence, complexity, novelty, and chance in nature.

The Origin of Modern Humans: The Fossil Evidence, Part 1

The Origin of Modern Humans: The Fossil Evidence, Part 1

But where, exactly, did we come from? Is there evidence for the earliest modern humans in the Holy Land? Is there a sharp break between those that came before, and us? Was there a time when there were only two humans on the planet?

What Americans Think and Feel about Evolution

What Americans Think and Feel about Evolution

The new Gallup survey shows in broad strokes the challenge we face. But more nuanced surveys find that only 8% of Americans are convinced creationists whose beliefs are dear to them, and only 4% are convinced atheistic evolutionists whose beliefs are dear to them. The vast majority of Americans are not sure of their position and are open to a conversation.

Peters Against the Process Theologians: Did God Really Create the Cosmos?

Peters Against the Process Theologians: Did God Really Create the Cosmos?

Why are we so quick to give up the idea of an initial origin? Or, to put it more precisely, why does a temporal beginning seem to be so expendable when explicating our theological concept of creation out of nothing?

From Cosmos to Psyche: The 2014 ASA/CSCA/CiS Annual Meeting

From Cosmos to Psyche: The 2014 ASA/CSCA/CiS Annual Meeting

We are interactive human beings with a capability and a need to connect with others. Those connections can be through electronic or written means but nothing can replace the need for direct personal engagement. Our annual meetings continue to provide that interaction in an environment of open discussion and often vigorous debates.

The Creator’s Canvas: How should Christian science teachers approach controversial issues?

The Creator’s Canvas: How should Christian science teachers approach controversial issues?

Most Christian students have a lot of questions about evolution and the other controversies, but are afraid to ask them for fear of the adults gasping in horror. The right way for a Christian teacher to proceed is to accommodate questions, foster inquiry, and encourage students to think and engage with the issues.

Creation for Kids

Creation for Kids

Children’s books are more than stories. They can become familiar narratives children listen to over and over. So it’s worth asking - Are the books we’re reading doing a good job of portraying God and His Creation?

Evolution basics: Becoming human, Part 3: Paleogenomics and the tangled web of human speciation

Evolution basics: Becoming human, Part 3: Paleogenomics and the tangled web of human speciation

Amazingly as it sounds, in the proper conditions DNA can persist inside bones and teeth for tens (or even hundreds) of thousands of years. Given our interest in human evolution, DNA sequencing of Neanderthals was one of the first uses for this new technology – and for the first time we could test the hypothesis of interbreeding with genetic evidence.

Religion, Science, and Society

Religion, Science, and Society

Conflicts occur when people argue one worldview against another. They may be arguing Atheism versus Monotheism, then pull out science as a weapon saying, "science proves I'm right because of this or that..." In my view, science is rather more limited than this. Science has a lot of interesting resonances with the big questions, and can inform them, but I don’t believe it can answer them.

Creation Unfolding: Reading Genesis in a Historical Setting

Creation Unfolding: Reading Genesis in a Historical Setting

For my part, the historical setting of the text plays an important role in how I read. It’s not a problem in my view to see the authors of Genesis embedded in their times, writing in the scientific/mythological terms they knew, even if those terms are now obsolete.

Zoom In, Slow Down: “Replaying” Evolution and the Fall

Zoom In, Slow Down: “Replaying” Evolution and the Fall

Zoom in; slow down. These are relevant principles for the conversation between Christian faith and evolution, too, particularly around thorny issues related to human origins and the Fall.

Is Creation from Nothing Obsolete?

Is Creation from Nothing Obsolete?

We must ask: does creatio ex nihilo help make the Gospel intelligible today? It is my own position that it does. However, not everyone agrees.

Human Evolution: Genes, Genealogies and Phylogenies

Human Evolution: Genes, Genealogies and Phylogenies

When read in this way, the Genesis stories may be seen as one of the greatest-ever revolutions in human understanding. Genesis used the literary forms of the day to introduce its readers to a rational God who cares for people – and whose faithfulness made science possible. Genesis is expressly about theology, not science.
