An Enriched Creation
Scripture gives us multiple ways of looking at things, and a classic example of this is the parables of Jesus. Many of these involve looking at nature. For example, natural events like seeds growing—and what Jesus seems to be saying is look there is a surface reading of nature—and then there is the deeper reading, where you begin to realize there are levels of meaning that we don’t pick up on our first acquaintance.
Nazarenes Exploring Origins Conference
As people came together for real conversations, they actually listened to one another, which is not always common in the kind of controversial topics we were exploring—topics about origins, evolution, and biblical interpretation.
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.
Katharine Hayhoe: Evangelical Christian, Climate Scientist
As an Evangelical and a scientist, Katharine Hayhoe is already a member of a rare breed. As a climate change researcher who is also married to an evangelical Christian pastor, she is nearly one of a kind.
Scientists Tell Their Stories: Owen Gingerich
When it came time to go to graduate school, one of Owen Gingerich's science professors told him “If you feel a calling to go to astronomy, you should give it a try, because we shouldn’t let atheists take over any particular field.”
In 1967, biologists Roger Payne and Scott McVay discovered that humpback whales “sing” and published recordings of the whales’ complex vocalizations, after which “whale song” quickly entered the popular consciousness and helped propel the “save the whales” environmental movement forward.
Science as Our Priestly Vocation
I wonder whether or not the growing dualism or growing conflict between science and religion is actually a rebellion of the creature, failure of us to see the generosity of God.
Art, Worship, Creation, and Imaginative Engagement
We should not be ashamed of the fact that our faith integrates spirit and body; our faith calls us to regard the stuff of creation in all of its materiality as good, and thus offers the best starting point for the practice and pleasure of art.
Worshipping God with Science: The Test of FAITH Tour
The primary reason why a Christian should consider science as a career is because it offers unique opportunities to worship God.
Both the arts and sciences are facets of “faith seeking understanding,” and we reject the cultural trend of seeing each field of endeavor—science, the arts, theology, or even Christian ministry—as distinct, autonomous activities divorced from the others.
What's Art Got to Do With It?
This video features a discussion with Mark Sprinkle -- painter, educator, writer, and BioLogos Senior Fellow -- about the relationship between art and science.
Sense, Reason and Intellect
As modern science reminds us just how big this universe is, the same question arises: "What is man?" And as we turn our telescopes to the skies and learn more about them, even more questions seem to arise.
Meditation on Light
I became a scientist because over and over, when I was a child, a teenager, and a college student, I experienced the sheer delight that comes with understanding the amazing physical mechanisms that are at work in our universe.
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
Come Thou Fount of every blessing / Tune my heart to sing Thy grace / Streams of mercy, never ceasing / Call for songs of loudest praise / Teach me some melodious sonnet, / Sung by flaming tongues above. / Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it, / Mount of God's unchanging love.
Victorian poet and Jesuit priest Gerard Manley Hopkins was noted for his focus on both religious and natural subjects, often intertwining the two. His sonnet “Pied Beauty” is just one example of Hopkins’ masterful ability to connect the beauty of nature with the wonder of God.
Our God is an Awesome God
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
Tuning In to God
This Sunday, even as we are surrounded by the winds, earthquakes, and fires of our own lives, let us take time to “tune in” to the beauty of God’s creation around us and to thank the Lord for all He has done.
Science can tell us how flowers bloom and how the sun rises and sets each day. Does such knowledge mean we cannot look upon these natural wonders and experience the same awe of our Creator, as described in the verses above?
The Wonders of the Universe
Humanity has been drawn to gaze upon the vast expanses of the heavens long before we could see to the farthest reaches of our galaxy thanks to modern telescopes and other scientific advancements. For the writer of the Psalms, the wonder of the sprawling skies was humbling.
