Series: Reading God’s Two Books: Early American Perspectives (8 entries)

American thinking about religion and science before the Civil War was substantially informed by the powerful “concordist” metaphor of God as the “author” of two “books,” nature and Scripture, which ultimately must agree.

 

Alex Berezow and Stephen Meyer talk about God and Evolution on the Michael Medved Show

"I believe that demonstrating the existence of intelligent agency with the tools of science is impossible." - Alex Berezow

 

Reclaiming Design

In a recent book review published in Christian Century, BioLogos content manager Jim Stump endeavors to reclaim the word “design.”

 

Hominin Evolutionary Patterns in the Early to Middle Pliocene: How Many Forms Are There?

These finds open up a new horizon of research into the earliest hominins and how they lived. They also provide us with even more clues in our ongoing search for the last common ancestor.

 

What does the fossil record show?

Though the fossil record does not include every plant and animal that ever lived, it provides substantial evidence for the common descent of life via evolution. The fossil record is a remarkable gift for the study of nature.

 

Series: Saturday Science Links (29 entries)

The biggest science stories of the week are reviewed.

 

The Dawn of Our Own Genus: The Rise of Early Homo

James Kidder explains how a stunning fossil discovery affects our understanding of human evolution.

 

Paleogenomics: A new generation of fossil hunters dig up God’s story of creation

Researchers in the emerging field of Paleogenomics are investigating the past using genetic research.

 

From the Archives: Miracles and Science, Part 5

By getting rid of the miracle stories in the Bible, Bultmann and his followers hoped to make the Christian story more palatable to modern man. Although I recognize the emotional weight of this sentiment, I am not convinced that it is an intellectually coherent approach, mainly for reasons of self-consistency.

 

N.T. Wright and the Resurrection: Reviewing “Surprised by Scripture” (Part 3)

Wright reminds us that robust Christian faith takes evidence on board, but fuses reason with faith, hope and love.

 

Origins News Roundup for September 17, 2014

Read about the death of Wolfhart Pannenberg, still debating creation and evolution, and a really big dinosaur discovery.

 

Series: Reviewing “Darwin’s Doubt” (11 entries)

 

Origins News Roundup for September 3, 2014

This week's news features volcanoes, skeletons, and stars, as well as a thought-provoking new book from InterVarsity press.

 

Series: Creation, Evolution, and the Over-Active Imagination (2 entries)

 

Still Surprised by Easter

We now take for granted an understanding of the Christian story that was largely worked out by Paul and later theologians. Even though the Gospels were composed after Paul’s letters, they were concerned to tell the story itself in all its strangeness as it had been preserved by the first generation of Christians. And what we find in the stories themselves is the shock and wonder and surprise that the resurrection caused.

 

“The Language of God” Book Club – Chapter 4

Some people who brook no “god of the gaps” arguments anywhere else look to these three moments as more reasonable places to insert God into natural processes: God spoke matter/energy into existence, God made life out of lifeless matter, and God breathed a soul into human beings.

 

Does Resurrection Contradict Science?

So what then does Resurrection mean? For Benedict it represents a new dimension of reality breaking through into human experience. It is not a violation of the old; it is the manifestation of something new.

 

Searching for Motivated Belief: Understanding John Polkinghorne, Part 2

To understand more clearly where Polkinghorne lies on the larger landscape of science and religion, let’s consider his approach to the Resurrection. Many contemporary thinkers, including some theologians and clergy, believe that “science” has somehow made it impossible to believe in the Resurrection, the deity of Jesus, and even belief in the transcendent God of the Bible.

 

Where are the Transitional Fossils?

A common argument leveled against the theory of evolution is that scientists have not been able to produce transitional fossils that show the change of one species into another. In this podcast, we address a common misconception about what transitional fossils actually are.

 

Series: The Human Fossil Record (20 entries)

In this series, James Kidder provides an intriguing study on transitional fossils and the evolutionary history of modern humans. He begins by discussing the fossil record, explaining how new forms are classified. He then explains the physically distinguishing trait of humankind—bipedalism. From the discovery of Ardipithecus, the earliest known hominin, to the australopithecines, the most prolific hominin, Kidder focuses on the discovery, the anatomy, and the interpretation of these ancestral remains.
