BioLogos Basics Video #5: How Old Is the Earth?

At BioLogos, we believe that a serious and faithful reading of Scripture doesn’t call for a recent origin to the earth, and we are persuaded that God has shown us through the natural world he created that his creative work began much earlier.

When you are in church, do you act and speak differently than when you are in school? Do you tend to compartmentalize what you learn about in Biology class from what you learn about in Sunday School?

 

An Enriched Creation

Scripture gives us multiple ways of looking at things, and a classic example of this is the parables of Jesus. Many of these involve looking at nature. For example, natural events like seeds growing—and what Jesus seems to be saying is look there is a surface reading of nature—and then there is the deeper reading, where you begin to realize there are levels of meaning that we don’t pick up on our first acquaintance.

 

Series: It's an Old World After All (2 entries)

In our sixth BioLogos videocast, we take a look at the age of the Earth. We explain four methods scientists have used to determine that age: tree ring, lake varve, radiometric, and seafloor spread dating, and also offer some theological insight on how an old earth can fit with the first chapters of Genesis.

 

Vox Balaenae

In 1967, biologists Roger Payne and Scott McVay discovered that humpback whales “sing” and published recordings of the whales’ complex vocalizations, after which “whale song” quickly entered the popular consciousness and helped propel the “save the whales” environmental movement forward.

 

Art, Worship, Creation, and Imaginative Engagement

We should not be ashamed of the fact that our faith integrates spirit and body; our faith calls us to regard the stuff of creation in all of its materiality as good, and thus offers the best starting point for the practice and pleasure of art.

 

Navigating the Crises

In this video, Brian McLaren discusses the idea of surrogate arguments, in which a debate over one thing is really a means for arguing something completely different. According to McClaren, the argument over the age of the earth is one such argument.

 

Imaginative Engagement

Both the arts and sciences are facets of “faith seeking understanding,” and we reject the cultural trend of seeing each field of endeavor—science, the arts, theology, or even Christian ministry—as distinct, autonomous activities divorced from the others.

 

What's Art Got to Do With It?

This video features a discussion with Mark Sprinkle -- painter, educator, writer, and BioLogos Senior Fellow -- about the relationship between art and science.

 

Faithful Poetics and Christian Knowledge of the World

Artist and BioLogos Senior Fellow Mark Sprinkle describes the importance of acknowledging the creative and subjective aspects of human knowledge in the midst of the debates about the relationship between science and faith.

 

Sense, Reason and Intellect

As modern science reminds us just how big this universe is, the same question arises: "What is man?" And as we turn our telescopes to the skies and learn more about them, even more questions seem to arise.

 

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Come Thou Fount of every blessing / Tune my heart to sing Thy grace / Streams of mercy, never ceasing / Call for songs of loudest praise / Teach me some melodious sonnet, / Sung by flaming tongues above. / Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it, / Mount of God's unchanging love.

 

Pied Beauty

Victorian poet and Jesuit priest Gerard Manley Hopkins was noted for his focus on both religious and natural subjects, often intertwining the two. His sonnet “Pied Beauty” is just one example of Hopkins’ masterful ability to connect the beauty of nature with the wonder of God.

 

Our God is an Awesome God

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

 

Tuning In to God

This Sunday, even as we are surrounded by the winds, earthquakes, and fires of our own lives, let us take time to “tune in” to the beauty of God’s creation around us and to thank the Lord for all He has done.

 

Clouds

Science can tell us how flowers bloom and how the sun rises and sets each day. Does such knowledge mean we cannot look upon these natural wonders and experience the same awe of our Creator, as described in the verses above?

 

The Wonders of the Universe

Humanity has been drawn to gaze upon the vast expanses of the heavens long before we could see to the farthest reaches of our galaxy thanks to modern telescopes and other scientific advancements. For the writer of the Psalms, the wonder of the sprawling skies was humbling.
