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.

A Response to Coyne, MacDonald, Ruse, and Wilkinson

A Response to Coyne, Macdonald, Ruse, and Wilkinson

This brief series addresses a few key points in response to critiques of a previous paper written by Denis Alexander, which presented two possible understandings of Adam in the Genesis account. In the first part, he discusses Coyne’s use of “intemperate language,” the differences between the science-religion debate in the UK and the US, and the method of hermeneutics he uses to interpret the Genesis story. In the latter section, he focuses primarily on the Retelling and the Homo divinus model put forth in his previous paper, clarifying and refining them.
