Time and Eternity: A Christological Perspective
The Incarnation reveals an intelligible world in which the scientist can be at home, a world where concepts like goodness, truth, beauty, justice, and love have real and abiding meaning.
“A vast number of congregational leaders know that when they deal with evolution, they are also dealing with job security.”- Joel Hunter
"I believe that demonstrating the existence of intelligent agency with the tools of science is impossible." - Alex Berezow
So what is BioLogos? Well it all began with a scientist and a book.
If you read Ecclesiastes carefully, Solomon is not saying that knowledge and learning are bad; he’s saying they’re incomplete.
In common English usage, “theory” means something like “guess” or “hunch”. In science, however, a theory is an idea that has stood the test of time.
The word evolution can be used in many ways, but in biology, it means descent with modification. In other words, small modifications occur at the genetic level (i.e. in DNA) when a new generation descends from its parents. Over many generations these modifications can result in significant differences from the ancestral population.
Is evolution driven mainly by random genetic variation, or are there other factors at play? Michael Burdett reviews the scientific debate.
Jim Stump explores the meaning of the Lenten season from the perspective of evolutionary creation.
A common challenge to evolutionary theory is that while life does indeed change over time (what is known as microevolution), no one has ever seen one species evolve into another species (macroevolution).
From 2012: Many secular and many evangelical voices agree on one ‘truism’—that if you are an orthodox Christian with a high view of the authority of the Bible, you cannot believe in evolution in any form at all. New Atheist authors such as Richard Dawkins and creationist writers such as Ken Ham seem to have arrived at consensus on this.
New BioLogos content editor Brad Kramer reviews Chapter 1 of “Surprised by Scripture” by NT Wright, and sees Wright’s work as a signpost for the future of the science/faith debate.
Written by BioLogos Fellow of Biology Dennis Venema, this series of posts is intended as a basic introduction to the science of evolution for non-specialists.
For Augustine, the literal sense of scripture is not a scientific narrative of physical reality, but a liturgical and poetic narrative of God’s awesome power at the dawn of history. This is a vital thread in the story of how to read Genesis.
Everyone is so worried about success and getting this or that honorable diploma—the people here are smart and understand many complex things perfectly—but it’s a long distance from the head to the heart.
Christ is the reason the natural sciences work: he is the source of the laws of nature, and he contains and underpins the natural sciences. Christ is the pattern for all created things, while the Spirit – his presence in the created world – breathes the divine fire into the equations.
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.
