New Ways To Join the BioLogos Dialogue!
Today, we are unveiling our new comment/discussion system, with many new ways to interact with authors and fellow readers about science and faith.
Our time at the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society showed that there is a hunger to a better conversation about science and evangelical Christianity.
In this week's edition, learn about amphibious dinosaurs, frozen bison mummies, and hummingbird combat.
The prevailing evangelical view that evolution is in competition with the biblical account of creation sets up students to encounter a false dichotomy, where they feel they must choose between science or their faith.
There is a need to speak out truthfully about evolution, but love and a desire for Christian unity must be foremost when doing so.
BioLogos president Deb Haarsma responds to Ken Ham’s recent comments about Hugh Ross, and pleads for a more gracious conversation between Christians on issues of faith and science.
Read about the death of Wolfhart Pannenberg, still debating creation and evolution, and a really big dinosaur discovery.
This week's news features volcanoes, skeletons, and stars, as well as a thought-provoking new book from InterVarsity press.
While it is true that Goodwin and others believe that their discoveries pose a major challenge to neo-Darwinian orthodoxy, this does not cause them to abandon their belief that the history of life can be explained as the outcome of biological processes!
We feel that the long-term efforts by ForumC to bring these different factions together are beginning to bear fruit. Where the atmosphere at the first conference was at times tense, this second conference was perceived by all those present as more relaxed and open. The willingness to concede past? errors and the problems involved in the respective positions taken was one clear sign of this.
We need to hear stories from others who have wrestled with evolution and Christian faith. What arguments made them change their views on science? How did they hold fast to their relationship with God? The essays in this series will eventually comprise a book, provisionally titled, “Evolving: Evangelicals Reflect on Evolution.”
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.
This week in origins news is a rousing medley of articles about science and faith, from multiple angles. Some classics on science, religion, and the classroom along with some probing into where atheists come from, new resources from John Polkinghorne, and an off-the-beaten-path blog post.
