Read about the death of Wolfhart Pannenberg, still debating creation and evolution, and a really big dinosaur discovery.
So what is BioLogos? Well it all began with a scientist and a book.
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.
