Should Christians Trust Scientific Experts?
Because reliance upon experts cannot be eliminated, the central question for Christians today is not “should I believe scientific experts?” but “which scientific experts should I believe?”
When non-believers in France or in Spain read what young-earth creationists are writing about evolution, geology, or astrophysics, they frequently conclude that the Bible is at best an interesting fairy tale.
Our time at the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society showed that there is a hunger to a better conversation about science and evangelical Christianity.
How does social context affect what Americans believe about science and religion, especially in regards to human origins? A new BioLogos-funded survey reveals the factors influencing the beliefs.
Pope Francis is reiterating a basic claim in Catholic Christianity: If one acknowledges that God creates by giving creatures not only their existence but also their natures, one can reconcile an evolutionary worldview with the Christian faith.
In science news this week, read about magical nose cells, 45,000 year old thigh bones, and the weirdest looking dinosaur ever.
The story of the Genesis Rock reminds us of how biblical and scientific accounts, despite their different purviews and purposes, remain inexorably linked in our understanding of origins.
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.
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.
“We should be slow to accuse another of discarding the authority of Scripture, and therefore denouncing them, just because they interpret Scripture differently than we do.”

From science and religion blogs: quantum uncertainty and God, the remarkable fact that we have come to understand our place in the created order, and the role of theology in making wise choices about the use of technology.
We feel that the long-term efforts by ForumC to bring these different factions together are beginning to bear fruit. Where the atmosphere at the first conference was at times tense, this second conference was perceived by all those present as more relaxed and open.

Musician Michael Gungor talks about the recent controversy over the evolution of his views on evolution, science, and biblical authority.
The purpose of Jesus’s art was to give verbal, visual, and dramatic forms to those complicated and confounding relationships, symmetries, and harmonies between himself, the father and spirit, and between the triune God and the world… Such creative expressions did not and do not make everything clear, but rather resist simple clarity, forcing their hearers to come at the whole complicated truth from a position of intellectual and spiritual humility.
We need to hear stories from others who have wrestled with evolution and Christian faith. What arguments made them change their views on science? How did they hold fast to their relationship with God? The essays in this series will eventually comprise a book, provisionally titled, “Evolving: Evangelicals Reflect on Evolution.”
