The Extended Synthesis (Reviewing “Darwin’s Doubt”: Robert Bishop, Part 1)

Many evolutionary and developmental biologists are pursuing an extended synthesis involving population genetics, developmental biology, epigenetics and other recent developments. Yet Stephen Meyer presents their published research as offering an alternative to or replacement for neo-Darwinian evolution.

 

God as Process Engineer: Creator, Sustainer, Reedemer, and Provider

Human Evolution: Genes, Genealogies and Phylogenies

When read in this way, the Genesis stories may be seen as one of the greatest-ever revolutions in human understanding. Genesis used the literary forms of the day to introduce its readers to a rational God who cares for people – and whose faithfulness made science possible. Genesis is expressly about theology, not science.

 

Interview with Ronald Osborn

We must press beyond the various creation narratives in the Hebrew Bible, including the final chapters of Job, to the picture of God revealed in the New Testament—the Creator who does not rationally explain away the scandal of suffering but who instead enters into it.

The Challenge of Cosmology

The idea that the story we know is only the very beginning raises a new question in place of Feynman’s objection that Christianity is provincial. Is it presumptuous to claim that in such a grand universe, possibly with intelligent life arising in many places, the redemption and transformation of the entire cosmos starts here, on our pale blue dot?
