New Videos Online from the ECF “Author of Life” Project

When you are in church, do you act and speak differently than when you are in school? Do you tend to compartmentalize what you learn about in Biology class from what you learn about in Sunday School?

 

John Ortberg Sermon: Does Science Disprove Faith?

All of you who do science, all of you who teach or research or you’re involved in engineering or medicine or education, or biology or chemistry or physics—you are doing a noble thing. You are thinking God’s thoughts after him. … You are obeying God’s command given way back in Genesis to exercise dominion, to learn about, to be curious and discover and steward the earth.

 

Series: From the Dust (13 entries)

In this series, Ryan Pettey offers several clips from his powerful documentary "From the Dust". This feature-length film is divided up into various sections, each of which wrestles with the difficult problems that arise when reconciling Scripture with the theory of evolution. A light of hope dawns on the science-faith conversation, however, as scientists and theologians engage in honest dialogue about tough issues such as the interpretation of Genesis, the nature of the Fall, and the idea of random design. Their profound insights are sure to enlighten all minds, raise deeper questions, and provoke new thought.

 

Francis Collins Talks about Science, Medicine, Religion, and God’s Action in the World

What’s the evidence for the idea that God exists or doesn’t exist? I think anyone who’s looked at that would conclude that the strong atheist position of saying, "I know there is not God" is not an easy one to sustain.

 

Evolution, the Enlightenment, and Worldviews

In this video conversation, N.T. Wright discusses how the Enlightenment worldview -- which clearly separates God from the world -- has impacted our view of Scripture, and why cleaning the "spectacles" through which we view the world can help us see both Scripture and the world more clearly.

 

Raising Children to Pursue Truth

In this video Conversation, Joel Hunter articulates the importance of raising a child that can garner knowledge from a variety of sources and to be able to study science with integrity—that is, to be able to pursue the truth to where it leads.

 

Worshiping, Growing, and Learning

Yesterday, biology professors Randy Moore and Sehoya Cotner raised the concern that workshops focused on evolution-related training do not reach creationism-based biology teachers. Today, we'd like to focus on BioLogos' efforts to address that divide through our Biology by the Sea workshops.

 

Using Film to Catalyze Conversations on Faith and Science

What are the best ways to spark productive conversations about science and faith? Certainly there are books, articles, blogs (like this one), and podcasts. But there are particular advantages to using film.

 

A Biologist's Perspective

In today's video, Dr. David Finch, a biologist at New York University, discusses his thoughts on both Creationism and the effects of "new atheists" like Richard Dawkins.

 

Sin and Seeking Truth

In today's video, theologian Alister McGrath discusses how we can make sense of the world in light of a fallen creation. One way, he notes, is to look for evidence from as many sources as possible, as science does.

 

In the Face of Evidence

In today's video, Rev. Dr. Michael Lloyd points out that it’s often the annoying things-- the things we want to deny and shut out-- that can actually improve and enlarge our worldview.

 

Series: Hutchinson on Atheism (7 entries)

Ian Hutchinson draws a sharp line between science and scientism. Scientism holds that all truth emerges from scientific study and explanation. Hutchinson, however, disagrees as he points to science’s inability to establish truth about, for example, the events that have occurred in humanity’s history on earth. He specifically engages Richard Dawkins assertions (from the book The God Delusion) that God is a scientific hypothesis that has been essentially disproved by science and that evolution explains religion as nothing more than a natural phenomenon.

 

Daniel Harrell on Embracing Truth

In this video, Daniel Harrell affirms that science is not the only way to pursue truth. Rather, truth happens in a variety of different ways and each one ultimately leads to an understanding of God.

 

Daniel Harrell on Embracing Science

In this video, Pastor Daniel Harrell encourages the Christian community to embrace science as an element which can harmonize and strengthen, rather than attack and undermine their understanding of theology.

 

Denis Alexander on Restoring a Traditional Creation Theology

In this video, Denis Alexander remarks that it is an error to argue that evolution is inherently atheistic, as it takes the scientific theory and imposes one’s personal ideology upon it.

 

Teaching Evolutionary Science in a Christian College Context

In this video “Conversation,” three faculty members from Christian colleges -- Professor Dorothy Boorse of Gordon College, Professor Jim Nichols of Abilene Christian University, and Provost Claudia Beversluis of Calvin College -- share thoughts on teaching evolutionary science to Christian undergraduates.

 

Darwin: The Father of Modern Racism?

Alexander notes that while the biological theory of evolution is not itself an ideology, it has been used for ideological purposes since 1859 to defend everything from eugenics to capitalism to racism to atheism.

 

God Revealed in Creation

In this video, pastor Daniel Harrell notes that, to him, faith must correspond to how things are, not merely how we wish they could be. Thus, exploring nature can be seen as a way to also explore our faith.

 

All Truth is God's Truth

In this video Conversation, Joel Hunter remarks: “I believe that all truth is God’s truth,” says Hunter, “so I am never afraid of truth—no matter who it comes from.”

 

No Fear

In this video Conversation, Os Guinness notes that Christians should be able to relate their faith to all sorts of issues, including science, and should have no fear of doing so. Guinness quotes George Whitfield, who said, “I’m never better than when I’m on the full stretch for God.”
