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.

Evidences for Evolution, Part 1: An Ancient Earth

Evidences for Evolution

This technical series, co-written by Darrel Falk and David Kerk, looks into the evidence for evolution in order to dispel doubts that people may have about this well-supported theory. They look at three things specifically: the separate methods which reveal of the age of the earth, the unfolding history of whale evolution, and finally the common trends of heart development in vertebrates.

Evidences for Evolution, Part 1: An Ancient Earth

The only conclusions in science which are widely accepted are those which are supported by multiple, reinforcing lines of evidence – “all roads must lead to Rome”. If there is even one scientific trajectory that seems to clearly lead off to Peoria instead of Rome, the scientific process demands that the scientist find out why.

Evidences for Evolution, Part 2a: The Whales’ Tale

Evidences for Evolution, Part 2a: The Whales’ Tale

If evolution is true, we would expect that living whales and living hoofed mammals should share extinct common ancestors, from which they descended with modification.

Evidences for Evolution, Part 3a: The Heart and Circulatory System of Vertebrates

If evolution is true, then each of us should retain, in our own bodies, “buried fossils” in the form of the soft tissue of our organs, which show evidence of descent with modification.

Evidences for Evolution: Part 3b: TINMAN and the Development of a Heart

Evidences for Evolution: Part 3b: TINMAN and the Development of a Heart

What does the Tinman have to do with the development of the heart? Well, sometimes scientists can manifest a quirky sense of humor.

Evidences for Evolution, Part 2b: The Whales’ Tale

If evolution is true, whales are related to the even-toed hoofed mammals, and there should be transitional fossil forms dating from about 45 to 50 million years ago.
