From the Archives: Evolution as a Scientific Theory

In common English usage, “theory” means something like “guess” or “hunch”. In science, however, a theory is an idea that has stood the test of time.

 

An Unexpected Adventure: Roger Wiens on Faith, Science, and Mars

Being a scientist in the Christian community, now that’s a little difficult at times. Many Christians have stubbornly resisted understanding the vastness of God’s creation in time and space.

 

Chance or Necessity in the Origin of Life?

I think the deepest question is "chance vs. necessity" in the origin of life. Not so much whether life was bound to occur...but more the question, "given that life started, was it destined to look the way we find it?"

 

What does the fossil record show?

Though the fossil record does not include every plant and animal that ever lived, it provides substantial evidence for the common descent of life via evolution. The fossil record is a remarkable gift for the study of nature.

 

What is Evolution?

The word evolution can be used in many ways, but in biology, it means descent with modification. In other words, small modifications occur at the genetic level (i.e. in DNA) when a new generation descends from its parents. Over many generations these modifications can result in significant differences from the ancestral population.

 

"Natural" and "Supernatural" are Modern Categories, Not Biblical Ones

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.

 

What is the genetic evidence for human evolution?

The more research that is done on DNA, the more evidence we find that all life is related.

 

Did Newton’s God Vanish with the “Gaps” in His Science?

In none of these cases was Newton inserting God into a “gap” into our knowledge that science would someday fill. Rather, his prior belief in God helped him arrive at attitudes and ideas that have unquestionably advanced our understanding of nature.

 

Living Water: How a Remarkable Chemical Shaped the Land and Life of Earth

From geology to biology to research into the origin of life itself, the power of water shows the faithfulness and creativity of our Creator.

 

If God created the universe, what created God?

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?

 

The Changing Face of Evolutionary Theory?

Is evolution driven mainly by random genetic variation, or are there other factors at play? Michael Burdett reviews the scientific debate.

 

I Have a Friend Who Believes Science Disproves Faith, Part 1

Is Christianity anti-science? Can Christians be good scientists? Is science the only source of true knowledge? Pastor Dave Gustavsen of Jacksonville Chapel addresses these issues.

 

Why should Christians consider evolutionary creation?

Evolution is a challenging subject to consider in light of biblical faith, so it is often easier to ignore or reject it than to engage in meaningful discussion about the topic. Yet considering evolutionary creation has important benefits for Christians both in our relationship with the Creator, and in our relationships with other people—both believers and non-believers.

 

What makes BioLogos different from Evolutionism, Creationism, and Intelligent Design?

A short guide to where BioLogos fits in the origins debate.

 

Series: Reviewing “Darwin’s Doubt” (11 entries)

 

Divine Ingenuity and Divine Hiddenness

Divine Hiddenness is the claim that our public evidence is strong enough to make Christian faith reasonable, but not strong enough to make it compelling.

 

How Science Led Me to A Deeper Faith

We as Christians cannot claim that the world belongs to God and at the same time distrust the systematic study of it.

 

Series: From the Archives: Miracles and Science (5 entries)

 

Newton, Leibniz, and the Role of God in Planetary Orbits

In the early 1700s, Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz famously disagreed about whether God periodically "corrected" the orbits of the planets. Why their disagreement matters for today's debates about God and evolution.
