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.

Still Surprised by Easter

Still Surprised by Easter

We now take for granted an understanding of the Christian story that was largely worked out by Paul and later theologians. Even though the Gospels were composed after Paul’s letters, they were concerned to tell the story itself in all its strangeness as it had been preserved by the first generation of Christians. And what we find in the stories themselves is the shock and wonder and surprise that the resurrection caused.

Exploring Evolution through Conversations in the Church

Exploring Evolution through Conversations in the Church

“So the question becomes: ‘If God created through a gradual, evolutionary process, how does that square with the conviction that the world is not an accident, and that our existence is an expected result?’ The Scientists in Congregation grant was an invitation to look at an evolutionary creation through the lens of Genesis.”

St. Thomas Aquinas and the Fittingness of Evolutionary Creation, Part 2

St. Thomas Aquinas and the Fittingness of Evolutionary Creation, Part 2

“…no one thinks that Michelangelo ‘wasted’ marble because there were leftover marble pieces after he had completed sculpting his masterpiece, David. There is no waste when the agent fittingly attains his end. Likewise, I propose that extinct species are not pointless waste.”

St. Thomas Aquinas and the Fittingness of Evolutionary Creation, Part 1

“As I have explained to my students at Providence College, it is easy for human beings to write a book, but it is impossible for them to make a book that writes itself. On the other hand, God not only causes, but also creates creatures who are in themselves true causes.”

The Miraculous Meniscus of Mercury

The Miraculous Meniscus of Mercury

“What Boyle was driving at is one of the most contentious ideas in the contemporary controversy over origins: methodological naturalism, the idea that scientific explanations ought to refer only to ‘natural’ causes, such as ‘natural’ laws, mechanisms, or forces.”

“I believe it is fair to conclude that the supposed threat posed to human free will and moral responsibility from the very much work-in-progress social and cognitive human sciences is quite overblown.”

Evolution Basics: The Placental Revolution, Part 2

“One shared feature of haplorhine primates is their curious inability to make their own vitamin C, forcing them to acquire it from their diet. This is unusual – the majority of mammals (including non-haplorhine primates) are able to make vitamin C starting from the basic dietary sugar glucose.”
