Origins News Roundup for August 6, 2014

News about the Ebola outbreak and initiatives in genomic medicine lead our news roundup this week, with a collection of research and learning opportunities in biology and at the science/faith border to follow.

 

What Do the Arts Have to Do with Evangelism?

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.

 

The Boxer and the Biologist

When the boxer and the biologist collided that November evening, they both had a substantial following, and they presented a sharp contrast to the audience: a pugilistic, self-educated fundamentalist evangelist against a suave, sophisticated science writer. When it comes right down to it, not all that different from Ken Ham versus Bill Nye, except that Ham has a couple of earned degrees where Rimmer had none.

 

Breaking Down False Dichotomies in Dayton

The great irony lies here: these partisans are actually leading good-hearted people to reject their faith, precisely because these partisans have convinced these good-hearted people that they must accept a false dichotomy.

 

Not So Dry Bones: An interview with Mary Schweitzer

We don’t have all the answers and never will. And when God says that he is revealed in his creation, I think that means we need to take care of what we have and understand where we came from. The more I understand how things work, the bigger God gets. When he was just a magician pulling things out of a hat, that doesn’t even compare to how I see him now!

What Americans Think and Feel about Evolution

The new Gallup survey shows in broad strokes the challenge we face. But more nuanced surveys find that only 8% of Americans are convinced creationists whose beliefs are dear to them, and only 4% are convinced atheistic evolutionists whose beliefs are dear to them. The vast majority of Americans are not sure of their position and are open to a conversation.

 

The Creator’s Canvas: How should Christian science teachers approach controversial issues?

Most Christian students have a lot of questions about evolution and the other controversies, but are afraid to ask them for fear of the adults gasping in horror. The right way for a Christian teacher to proceed is to accommodate questions, foster inquiry, and encourage students to think and engage with the issues.

 

Creation for Kids

Children’s books are more than stories. They can become familiar narratives children listen to over and over. So it’s worth asking - Are the books we’re reading doing a good job of portraying God and His Creation?

 

BioLogos Is Hiring

We are searching for a qualified candidate to serve as Content Editor, beginning August 1.

 

Still Surprised by Easter

We now take for granted an understanding of the Christian story that was largely worked out by Paul and later theologians. Even though the Gospels were composed after Paul’s letters, they were concerned to tell the story itself in all its strangeness as it had been preserved by the first generation of Christians. And what we find in the stories themselves is the shock and wonder and surprise that the resurrection caused.

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?

 

Is God the Creator?

Does BioLogos believe that God is the creator? Yes, all Christians believe this; the question is, how did God create?

So what is BioLogos? Well it all began with a scientist and a book.

 

Origins News Round-up for Friday, February 14, 2014

BioLogos in One Sentence

This list didn’t come from a boring discussion of “what should be our core values.” Rather, each of these commitments came up repeatedly in our discussions of what BioLogos is all about.

 

Trying all Things: The Importance of Experience in Scriptural Interpretation

“All of a sudden, it was possible to grant a text deep authority (a ‘high view of scripture’ we say) while discounting neither our own experience, nor the historical experience of those writing, compiling, editing that same text. To put it differently, all of a sudden, history mattered—the history of the text itself, and the history of our interpretations of a text.”
