All creation is the doings of God’s hands, no matter how he did it. When I look at a painting, I can connect somehow with the painter, and the same goes with the universe and God.
I became such an expert in young-earth creationist theology and science that it turned into a wrecking ball for my faith.
In this week's edition, learn about amphibious dinosaurs, frozen bison mummies, and hummingbird combat.
The prevailing evangelical view that evolution is in competition with the biblical account of creation sets up students to encounter a false dichotomy, where they feel they must choose between science or their faith.
Science is an honest and noble pursuit, evidence of human intellect and curiosity, and to turn away from these is to deny a very important part of who God created us to be in the first place.
In science news this week, read about magical nose cells, 45,000 year old thigh bones, and the weirdest looking dinosaur ever.

But what I heard on Sundays did not seem to fit with what I experienced of the world the rest of the week. Growing up in New Mexico in the cottonwood bosque of the Rio Grande valley provided everything for a kid to become a biologist. I roamed along the river, cooked over cottonwood fires, ate wild asparagus, watched clouds form thunderheads over the distant peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
This week in origins news, a great collection of articles by key players in the conversation about theology and science, a surprising science fair discovery, and the Apollo 11 anniversary!
