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.

Science and the Question of God, Part I

Science and the Question of God

Randy Isaac explores whether science can provide insight into the existence of God in this five part post, looking specifically through the lenses of evolution, creationism, and intelligent design. He provides background of each view and a brief history of how people have responded to it. Then, he explains why they each fail “to provide a persuasive answer from science to the question of God.” He concludes with the two-book model in which both science and theology point to God, but do not overlap.

Many people accepted William Paley’s early nineteenth century concept of detecting the divine designer until Darwin published his theory. Design lost favor until it was revived in the late 1980s and 1990s when it blossomed into a widely publicized movement known as Intelligent Design (ID).

The word “information” is used in many different ways, often leading to confusion. It may be helpful to consider three of the categories in which the term is often used.

Science and the Question of God, Part 5

Consider a theology that interprets the Word of God with no acknowledgment of nature. The incarnation then makes no sense. Nature cannot be ignored or devalued.
