Multiple Lines of Evidence for an Old Universe
Astronomers have many different methods for measuring the age of various objects in the universe, and they all support ages of billions of years, not thousands. Even if the assumptions of one or two methods were faulty, it is highly unlikely that all of the methods would be affected.
Exploring Baby Galaxies with Charles Steidel
No one need ask: “Were you there?” Chuck Steidel has tapped into nature’s own motion picture of past events, now showing in the present. Anyone who cares to view it can now see for himself what was and wasn’t there, at various stages of the deep past.
Infographic: "In the Pipeline" for Our Evolution & Christian Faith Grant Program
Last month, we announced the 37 grantees from our Evolution & Christian Faith program! This month, we take a closer look at the projects and what’s “in the pipeline” over the coming years from these grantees!
Science and Scientism in Biology: The Origin of Morality
The problem is that as human beings, we know that goodness exists, so it must be accounted for, and if one is a staunch believer in scientism, it must be accounted for scientifically.
Evolution and Christian Faith Grantees Announced
Congratulations to the 37 winners of the Evolution & Christian Faith (ECF) grants competition! ECF is a new BioLogos program designed to support projects and network-building among scholars, church leaders, and parachurch organizations.
Dissonance and Harmony
People hold clearly discordant points of view, and it would be dishonest to ignore the conflict. Yet some voices emphasize the dissonance without any note of harmony to put it in context. Too often, science and faith becomes a hostile battle of worldviews, sounding angry, dissonant chords even among fellow Christians. But civil, gracious dialogue is possible.
New Leadership for The BioLogos Foundation
With great pleasure, the Board of Directors of The BioLogos Foundation announces the appointment of Deborah Haarsma to become our next President, and of Jeffrey Schloss to the role of Senior Scholar. Professor Haarsma assumes leadership from our outgoing President Darrel Falk, to whom we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude.
Does Evolution Compromise Human Morality?
Once we have a scientific hypothesis for how something exists, it is tempting to make the philosophical inference that this is also why it exists.
Series: Harmonizing Science, Ethics, and Praxis
In this three-part series, Cal DeWitt offers insights and examples of why science and ethics must work together to help us make informed, practical decisions within our society. DeWitt’s science-ethics-praxis model provides a framework by which we can live more effectively as God’s stewards.
Series: To Serve and Preserve—Genesis 2 and the Human Calling
In this series, David Buller pays careful attention to the original language and cultural context of Genesis 2, revealing that our responsibility to care for creation is a sacred task given to us by God, not merely a modern secular activity. By taking Scripture seriously, we learn that we have a God-given mandate to be diligent stewards of His creation.
Southern Baptist Voices: And in Conclusion . . .
My goal in leading this organization for these past three and a half years has been to lay the groundwork to help my fellow evangelicals see that the conflict between our faith and mainstream science is not as great as they thought it was. In the process, my thinking has been significantly shaped by listening to people who think differently than I do
Introducing the BioLogos Navigator
Part of BioLogos mission is to show how all things hold together in Christ—to show how a Christian worldview integrates the knowledge we have of God through the Scriptures with the knowledge we have of God through the other areas in which He reveals himself as Creator and Redeemer.
Confronting Our Fears, Part 2: Losing Biblical Authority
Throughout my various conversations with fellow believers, the most-mentioned anxiety over accepting an evolutionary creationist paradigm is the fear of losing the Bible as one’s spiritual anchor and source of authority.
Series: It's an Old World After All
In our sixth BioLogos videocast, we take a look at the age of the Earth. We explain four methods scientists have used to determine that age: tree ring, lake varve, radiometric, and seafloor spread dating, and also offer some theological insight on how an old earth can fit with the first chapters of Genesis.
Introducing The Resource Finder
How do we give our visitors access to our vast archive of resources, and how do we make sure they are finding the resources that address their most pressing questions?
Quali sono le differenze tra BioLogos e l’Evoluzionismo, il Disegno Intelligente ed il Creazionismo?
Noi di BioLogos crediamo che Dio abbia usato il processo evolutivo per creare tutte le forme di vita presenti oggi sulla Terra. Mentre da un lato accettiamo la scienza dell’evoluzione, rifiutiamo nettamente l’evoluzionismo. L’evoluzionismo è una visione atea del mondo ed afferma che la vita si è sviluppata senza Dio, senza un fine e senza intenzionalità. Al contrario, noi siamo d’accordo con i Cristiani che, aderendo al Disegno Intelligente e al Creazionismo, affermano che il Dio della Bibbia ha creato l’universo e tutte le forme di vita. I Cristiani sono però in disaccordo su come Dio ha creato. I Creazionisti della Terra Giovane credono che Dio abbia espletato la sua azione creatrice tra i 6.000 e i 10.000 anni fa e sono in disaccordo con gran parte della scienza tradizionale. I sostenitori del Disegno Intelligente accettano gran parte della scienza dell’evoluzione, ma sostengono che alcune caratteristiche della vita siano meglio spiegate dall’intervento diretto di una entità intelligente, piuttosto che da un normale e regolare modo di operare da parte di Dio tramite i processi naturali. Noi di BioLogos siamo d’accordo con il moderno consenso scientifico riguardo all’età della Terra e dello sviluppo evolutivo di tutte le specie, vedendo queste come descrizioni di come Dio ha creato. Il termine BioLogos deriva dalle parole bios (vita) e logos (parola), e si riferisce all’inizio del Vangelo secondo Giovanni: “Nel principio c’era la Parola, e la Parola era presso Dio, e la Parola era Dio. Essa era nel principio con Dio. Per mezzo di lei tutte le cose sono state fatte”.
Growing in Faith
As he endeavored to learn more, David was intrigued by Francis Collins book The Language of God because Francis did not present evolution as a rival theory to Christian faith, but as something that described God's method of creation.
Series: Recent Discoveries in Astronomy
In this excerpt from the book Delight in Creation: Scientists Share Their Work with the Church, astronomer Deborah Haarsma shares her excitement about recent findings about our universe from a Christian perspective.
Series: Biblical and Scientific Shortcomings of Flood Geology
Gregg Davidson and Ken Wolgemuth seek to remove the stumbling block of the Genesis flood in this four part series. Though many believe in an ancient world-wide flood, the evidence given does not hold up to geological scrutiny, but points rather to something regional instead. It is their hope that Christians will not walk away from faith in Christ simply because a global flood is not supported by science. Looking at natural phenomena like the Grand Canyon, salt beds, and fossil deposits, they reveal reasons for these deposits and structures while showing that their origin did not stem from a violent flood that covered the planet.
Conversations in Creation
Since the BioLogos/Highway Media collaboration From the Dust made its worldwide debut this year, we’ve been excited to hear how others have been using the film to jump start their own conversations with fellow Christians about science and faith .
