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 Theological Dilemma of Evolution, Part 1

2 Part Series: The Theological Dilemma of Evolution

In this series, Gordon J. Glover examines both sides to the evolution controversy as it relates to the Bible. He asserts that whether evolution is true or false, it creates theological problems. Therefore, it is necessary for pastors, seminary professors, and theologians to seriously consider the facts and facilitate honest discussion about the issues at hand.

The Agency Assumption: Why Do We Look for Intelligence in the Unknown?

The Agency Assumption: Why Do We Look for Intelligence in the Unknown?

It’s difficult to describe, but something irregular in the audio signal got me thinking that the noise was being generated by a critter! Once I made the mental connection to deliberate conscious activity, I easily imagined that a rat was chewing a hole in something.

Evolution, Design and History

Evolution, Design and History

But what if somebody wanted to believe instead that the street, the house, the track, the chain-link fence, and the useless driveways were all designed and built just as they are today? In other words, what if these useless driveway-like structures were the result of deliberate planning rather than circumstance?

Crabby Christians or Nebulous Data?

Crabby Christians or Nebulous Data?

Scientists who confront Bible-believing Christians with the physical evidence of theologically-challenging views like old-earth geology or common ancestry are usually incredulous when their well-crafted and well-supported arguments fall on deaf ears. How can something so obvious to one person be so easily dismissed by another?

Intelligent Design vs. Alien Intervention

Intelligent Design vs. Alien Intervention

On the surface, Intelligent Design seems to be a perfectly reasonable approach to studying complexity. In our everyday experience, there is certainly nothing controversial about attributing the purposeful arrangement of components to an intelligent agent.
