“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.”

 

Book review: “Why Science Does Not Disprove God” by Amir D. Aczel

Thus, no matter what scientific evidence is amassed to explain the architecture of atoms, or the ways that neurons exchange chemical and electrical signals to create the sensations in our minds, or the manner in which the universe may have been born out of the quantum foam, science cannot disprove the existence of God — any more than a fish can disprove the existence of trees.

 

New Videos Online from the ECF “Author of Life” Project

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?

 

“The Language of God” Book Club – Chapters 7-9

How can we avoid a god of the gaps situation without completely removing God from the created order? How else might we describe God’s relationship to the functioning of natural systems?

 

The Noah Movie

Russell Crowe as Noah was no superhero. He was very human—perhaps too human for those who’d prefer he remain in the flannel graph world of our Sunday School stories.

 

Is God the Creator?

Does BioLogos believe that God is the creator? Yes, all Christians believe this; the question is, how did God create?

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

 

On Creating the Cosmos

“I believe that we must now ask for more than simple avoidance of cognitive dissonance. I believe we should seek for cognitive consonance.”

 

Reflections on Tyson’s Cosmos, Episode 1

Carl’s dramatic lines that opened his Cosmos were repeated in Cosmos II: “The universe is all there is, or was, or ever will be.” When I told Haines Stiles that many people took that as a statement of atheism, he responded with surprise. “Really?” he said. “We just put that in because it sounded poetic!”

 

John Ortberg Sermon: Does Science Disprove Faith?

All of you who do science, all of you who teach or research or you’re involved in engineering or medicine or education, or biology or chemistry or physics—you are doing a noble thing. You are thinking God’s thoughts after him. … You are obeying God’s command given way back in Genesis to exercise dominion, to learn about, to be curious and discover and steward the earth.

 

Origins News Roundup for Friday, February 28, 2014

Ever wonder what a huge frozen lake looks like from space? Or what the best blunders in science history have been? Closer to home (for us anyway), have you contemplated whether America’s views on evolution will ever change? Today’s News Roundup brings you a mashup of thoughtful essays and some fun items to make your Friday more interesting.

 

Praying the Psalms: Psalm 19

The Psalmist is saying that when we walk outside and look up, the heavens are telling us two things about God: they tell us about his glory, and they tell us about what his hands can do.

 

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.

 

Rethinking the Origins Debate

Even among the majority [of Americans] who believe that God created humans, the chasm separating creationist and evolutionist views appears to be gargantuan. Are Americans really this divided over human origins? As a social scientist, I am skeptical about these findings.

Reflections on the “Non-Negotiable” God of the Road to Damascus

There was nothing about my experiences on Oct. 20 or the God I’d met that day that intimated to me that he harbored a particular abhorrence for evolution or any scientific theory. I wonder how often we do stuff like that: add things to our list of divine “non-negotiables” that really reflect nothing of the God we experienced when he first welcomed us into his family as a free gift of grace.

 

Origins News Round-up for January 31, 2013

Our News Roundup today covers a range of cultural and political stories about the relationship of science and faith, along with a few new items of interest from the cosmos.

 

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.
