A Review, a Sermon, a Testimony and More
Some of the most popular posts on the blog this month have been links to other content: Harvard astronomer Owen Gingerich reflected on the new Cosmos series, Pastor John Ortberg gave a sermon on science and faith; and the President of Christian Women in Science, Lynn Billman, wrote an article for the Huffington Post on Women in STEM. Of course we also regularly link to other content with our bi-weekly Origins News Roundup, which is now produced by our student intern Hannah Birky.
In the month of March BioLogos History Fellow Ted Davis concluded his series on Robert Boyle, and began a new series on the work of contemporary scholar Ted Peters. Our Fellow in Genetics, Dennis Venema continued his introductory series on evolution, with an engaging post about Mitochondrial Eve and Y Chromosome Adam. Dennis also wrote a response to a recent piece from The Discovery Institute who took direct aim at one of his papers on common ancestry.
It is also worth reading (or rereading) several of our two-part posts by guest authors: scientist Paul Julienne on the Amazing Story of Carbon in which he gives the fascinating details of how carbon formed in stars and came to compose our bodies; filmmaker Stephen Ashley Blake gave his testimony of coming to faith in God and reconciling that with science; and philosopher John T. Mullen reflected on the hiddenness of God.
