Blog Highlights from 2013
For the year-end newsletter, instead of looking at just the last month of blog posts, we’re pointing you to our top ten most-viewed blog posts of 2013:
Three of the top ten come from our fellow, Dennis Venema, and his series on Evolution Basics including (1) Artificial Selection and the Origins of the Domestic Dog, (2) A New Introductory Course on Evolutionary Biology, and (3) Evolution as a Scientific Theory. This informational series has been linked to and discussed by professors from both Christian and secular universities. Top science educators find this series to be a great resources when discussing origins.
Two other blog posts that made the list are, respectively, about teaching biology in public schools and in Christian schools. The former is a post by Randy Moore and Sheyoa Cotner on Evolution and Creationism in America’s Classrooms; the latter is A Tale of Two Worldviews: Being a Biology Teacher in a Christian School by Eric Kretschmer.
Two other blog posts in our top ten include the Response to Ken Ham which was written as a response promoting gracious dialogue with those who disagree on the subject of origins. And the Reasons to Believe blog, where they reviewed the young earth creationist video, “Evolution vs. God.” These two posts promote our mission of advancing the conversation on science and faith through loving and compassionate discourse on issues that tend to divide Christians.
Our fellow, Ted Davis, wrote a blog series on John Polkinghorne: Searching for Motivated Belief and Loren Haarsma’s recent post titled Why the Church Needs Multiple Theories of Original Sin were also included in our top ten blog posts of 2013. These two posts show how BioLogos promotes cutting edge ideas as a forum for discussion.
And finally, rounding out the top ten is the blog post announcing New Leadership for BioLogos. BioLogos President Deb Haarsma and senior scholar Jeff Schloss were introduced during the transition process as leaders who embrace and celebrate the harmony of great science and biblical faith.
