God the Cosmic Gardener
I began to imagine God taking delight in watching the universe slowly unfold and grow, much like my wife and I delight in the slow transformation of seeds into a bountiful harvest.
A common challenge to evolutionary theory is that while life does indeed change over time (what is known as microevolution), no one has ever seen one species evolve into another species (macroevolution).
If I studied science, allowed my intellect to thrive, and continued the pursuit of understanding how things work, I was convinced that I would be condemning my soul and forsaking my faith.
Many of this week's science links happen at the wondrous intersection of mystery and discovery.
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.
Conflicts, collisions, and comets are the theme in this week's Saturday Science Links.
Studying the basis of life’s design cannot meaningfully be separated from the character of the One responsible for it. By living in relationship with him through whom all things were created and in whom all things have their being, we experience the purpose and meaning with which this universe is infused.
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.
John Calvin really believed that the sun revolved around the earth, but we shouldn't dismiss the rest of his theology because of this error.
From the archives: A common argument leveled against the theory of evolution is that scientists have not been able to produce transitional fossils that show the change of one species into another. In this podcast, we address a common misconception about what transitional fossils actually are.
My childhood in the evangelical church gave me the toolkit that led me to eventually accept the evidence for evolution, and marvel at the God who created it all.
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.
Are black holes in trouble? Could life have come from space? What do we know about the religious lives of Indian scientists? Find the answers to these questions and more.
Read about the death of Wolfhart Pannenberg, still debating creation and evolution, and a really big dinosaur discovery.
God invites us to understand his power and nature through studying what has been made.
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.
