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.

An Evangelical Geneticist’s Critique of Reasons to Believe’s Testable Creation Model, Pt. 1

An Evangelical Geneticist’ Critique of Reasons to Believe’s Testable Creation Model

The critique put forth in this two part series by Denis Venema highlights several flaws in Reasons To Believe’s approach to human origins. He gives a brief history of primate comparative genomics. Then, he follows with the RTB’s responses to studies comparing chimpanzee and human genomes as well as to studies on pseudogenes, pointing out their misrepresentations of “established science.” He calls RTB and all Christians to cease packaging the gospel with poor arguments that create unnecessary barriers to faith.
