Life In An Expanding Universe

Life In An Expanding Universe

Our dwelling in the universe—in short, our humanity—is enriched when we pay attention to what’s outside ourselves and ask it in.

Saturday Sermon: Paradise in Crisis

Selfishness and violence, corruption and greed, wars and atrocities—for all time, this one question has been pondered: what went wrong in humanity?

From the Dust: Framing the Debate

From the Dust: Framing the Debate

So why are Christians nervous about evolution and why do we even use a phrase like the ‘e’ word? The word itself has a negative connotation in many groups.

The Tree of Life: A Movie Review by Brian Godawa

The Tree of Life: A Movie Review by Brian Godawa

We are introduced to a myriad of supernovas and condensing star galaxies all the way down to microbial ocean life on earth, up an evolutionary chain of complexity to fish and amphibian, through dinosaurs, including an extinguishing meteoric crash on earth and ultimately to the birth of a human baby.

Last Confessions of a Dying Star

We have grown accustomed to the idea that we know what we are looking at when we see a photograph—that a picture, a “snapshot,” gives us access to a “moment of truth” about the thing pictured

From Intelligent Design to BioLogos, Part 1: Early years

From Intelligent Design to BioLogos, Part 1: Early years

For those familiar with my work here at BioLogos, it might come as a surprise to know that until relatively recently I was a supporter of the Intelligent Design Movement (IDM). In this series of posts, I tell the story of my transition to the view that God uses evolution as a creative mechanism.

Thomas Aquinas: Saint of Evolutionary Psychologists?

Thomas Aquinas: Saint of Evolutionary Psychologists?

Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) was the foremost Christian scholar of the High Middle Ages and is today regarded as a "doctor" of the Catholic Church. No, Aquinas was not a materialist neuroscientist, but he understood the intimate interdependence of mind and body.

Visions of Ordinary

Visions of Ordinary

In this sense, the psalmist and prophets and ancient storytellers are indeed all struggling artists, closing the infinite distance between the grandeur of God and an ordinary humanity. What is man that Thou art mindful of him? The son of man that Thou visitest him?

Saturday Sermon: The First Wedding Day

Saturday Sermon: The First Wedding Day

The ordained and blessed tradition of marriage is established in Genesis 2: 18-25. This passage communicates important ideas, Dr. Keller affirms, about both marriage seeking and marriage executing. When considered, these concepts will allow one to be successful in both areas.

Deep Resonances between Science and Theology, Part 6

Deep Resonances between Science and Theology, Part 6

The Father’s engendering love for the Son calls creation into life through the power of the Holy Spirit. The indwelling Spirit, then, permeates the entire cosmos—every atom, super nova, and biological form—with life-giving energy.

For one thing, there is the serpent, and however you interpret the serpent, here is a bit of the created order that is actively talking against God, working against God—so there is already something that has gone wrong.

The New String

The New String

The presence in the cosmos of the "new string"-- the Messiah, does not intrude on or threaten what is already there but is a means of establishing harmony. He is both a measure of the order in creation and a means and promise of redemption.

Are Infinities More Scientific Than God?

Are Infinities More Scientific Than God?

So from where does the deepest order originate? From a naturalistic standpoint, we don't know because we have yet to uncover nature's deepest laws. However, even if we reveal these laws, the question of why they give rise to such profound order will still remain a puzzle.

Of interest for our purposes here is the simple realization that a relatively small number of subtle genetic changes undergird the large biological differences we observe between humans and chimpanzees.

Saturday Sermon: Who is Jesus?

Saturday Sermon: Who is Jesus?

Although it is now clear that we, “the sons and daughters of Adam,” were created through an evolutionary process, we believe that all of humankind has a fallen nature in need of redemption. Like Eve before us, we hear a voice telling us that we can sort out good and evil on our own. We don’t need God, we think.
