Saturday Science Links: October 18, 2014

Collection of the best articles of the past several weeks on science (and faith) from around the web.

 

Ken Ham, We Need a Better Conversation (Perhaps Over Dinner?)

BioLogos president Deb Haarsma responds to Ken Ham’s recent comments about Hugh Ross, and pleads for a more gracious conversation between Christians on issues of faith and science.

 

Ch. 5-6: How the Categories Shape the Conversation

The words we use to talk about the Bible and science often predispose us towards unnecessary conflicts.

 

Why Evolution Debates Don’t Matter

The 1930 showdown between evolutionist Schmucker and creationist Rimmer generated a lot of heat but shed very little light on the real issues behind the debate.

 

The Evolution of a Southern Baptist

Recent high-school graduate Jacob shares about his journey from young-earth creationism to evolutionary creationism, and how his faith was challenged and strengthened along the way.

 

The Tradition of Wisdom for Today: a Relational Theology of Science

If discussions of science and religion sometimes get bogged down in Genesis, perhaps that is because they have not made the preparatory journey through the rich material of the Wisdom books.

 

What Americans Think and Feel about Evolution

The new Gallup survey shows in broad strokes the challenge we face. But more nuanced surveys find that only 8% of Americans are convinced creationists whose beliefs are dear to them, and only 4% are convinced atheistic evolutionists whose beliefs are dear to them. The vast majority of Americans are not sure of their position and are open to a conversation.

Series: BioLogos Basics (5 entries)

So what is BioLogos? Well it all began with a scientist and a book.

 

“The Language of God” Book Club – Chapters 10-11

Collins’ original use of the term “BioLogos” was as an alternative label for the position often known as “theistic evolution.” Now this gets a bit confusing as “BioLogos” became the name for our organization that Collins founded (after the publication of this book). We continue to be dissatisfied with the label “theistic evolution” because as Collins said, most non-theologians are unsure how the term “theist” “could be converted to an adjective and used to modify Darwin’s theory.”

 

Ken Ham and Biblical Authority

Because BioLogos accepts the scientific evidence for the age of the earth and common ancestry, Ham believes we are undermining the Bible and denying its authority. However, the authority of the Bible is key for all that we do at BioLogos.

 

Ham on Nye – What to Watch for

Watch to see whether the debate encourages the opinion that science and Christianity are at war. We don’t think you have to choose sides.

 

BioLogos in One Sentence

This list didn’t come from a boring discussion of “what should be our core values.” Rather, each of these commitments came up repeatedly in our discussions of what BioLogos is all about.

 

Forbes Magazine Covers Evolution Basics

“Evangelicals really needed an organization that would stand up and say, in a nutshell, I’m an evangelical, and I accept evolution,” he said.

Series: BioLogos’s New Comments Policy (2 entries)

 

Response to Ken Ham

Last week Ken Ham addressed BioLogos specifically in a blog post, in response to Daniel Hamlin’s testimony told in our blog on October 14th.

 

What’s in the Works at BioLogos

There is no formula for generating beliefs in people. There are plenty of people with access to the same facts who end up believing different things. But for many Christians—like the ones I heard from this week—access to information about the position we call “evolutionary creation” could make a significant difference for reconciling science and Christian faith.
