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.

Copernicus, Interrupted (Part 1)

Copernicus, Interrupted

In this short series, Brandon Withrow compares the historical clash between heliocentrism and Protestantism to the current conflict between evolution and Evangelicalism. He examines three main ideas held by ancient Christians that led to the initial rejection of Copernicus’ sun-centered system as well as traces the major events that led to its gradual acceptance. Based on the outcomes of this past event between science and faith, Withrow predicts that it will be a long time before evolution is assumed to be correct.
