Alex Berezow and Stephen Meyer talk about God and Evolution on the Michael Medved Show
"I believe that demonstrating the existence of intelligent agency with the tools of science is impossible." - Alex Berezow
The idea of “research programs” helps explain why it’s so hard for people of different origins perspectives to understand each other, and even harder to change positions.
In a recent book review published in Christian Century, BioLogos content manager Jim Stump endeavors to reclaim the word “design.”
The history of interpretation of Adam from Genesis to the 1st Century reveals a bold and astonishing diversity in which the authors made of Adam what they needed of Adam.
When we make distinctions between natural and supernatural activity in Scripture, not only do we push our modern categories into the Bible, but we also limit God’s action.
Many arguments claiming to prove the existence of God have been proposed throughout the centuries. A popular argument is that, since all effects come from causes, there must have been a “first cause” that is outside the material world—an “uncaused cause”. The response to many of these arguments, however, is: “If God created the world, what created God?
In both form and content, then, Genesis 1 reveals that its basic purposes are religious and theological, not scientific or historical.
We need safe places in which to raise the complex issues of submitting wholeheartedly to the authority of God’s Word in the Scriptures while wrestling with the important findings and perspectives in the natural sciences.
From 2012: The dictionaries I checked don’t define the term, “theistic evolution,” so I offer my own definition: the belief that God used the process of evolution to create living things, including humans.
From the archives: With From the Dust, it was our goal to help Christians see the complexity of the issues raised by modern science, as well as help them to courageously engage with the theological conversations happening within the sphere of Christian culture today.
Collection of the best articles of the past several weeks on science (and faith) from around the web.
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.
When we sit down to read sacred Scripture, we need to develop a rapport with the Bible’s various authors and their worldviews. Otherwise, we will unintentionally demand they communicate in the same manner we do.
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.
Musician Michael Gungor talks about the recent controversy over the evolution of his views on evolution, science, and biblical authority.
While I have known of many people who have been driven away from the Church by controversies related to evolution, I do not personally know of anyone who has embraced Christianity primarily because they were persuaded to reject evolution. While evolutionary theory can be used to support an atheistic explanation for how the world came to be, it does not require that perspective.
