A “Church Kid” Learns to Integrate Theology and Biology

Everything changed for me when I learned to acknowledge that I was made in the image of Jesus, who was theology and biology integrated.

 

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.

 

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.

 

NPR, Unicorns, and the Great American Cultural Divide

A recent NPR radio segment wins the prize for the most counter-productive example of science/faith journalism in recent memory.

 

Gene Editing in Human Embryos

We, both in the church and in broader society, need to think carefully together about how new technology should be used, even as we give thanks for the fruitfulness of modern science, medicine, and technology.

 

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.

 

Better Science for Clergy? PBS Discusses Science in Seminaries

Recently, the PBS show "Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly" featured a new program to help seminary students better understand science.

 

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.

 

Galaxies, Genes, and the Glory of God

If you have ever struggled to communicate with friend or family member about evolutionary creationism, or simply how science and faith mutually enrich each other, this lecture is an amazing reference.

 

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.

 

R.C. Sproul on Science, Scripture, and the Age of the Universe

"I think we can learn from non-believing scientists who are studying natural revelation. They may get a better sense of the truth from their study of natural revelation than I get from ignoring natural revelation."

 

Francis Collins Interviewed in National Geographic, Social Media Reacts

Francis Collins, BioLogos founder and current director of the National Institutes of Health, was profiled in the latest issue of National Geographic magazine. The profile, titled “Man of Science—and Faith”, included a short interview with Collins about how his faith impacts his scientific work, and his belief in the harmony between science and Christian faith.

 

Atheism, Truth, and Certitude: Jeff Hardin Weighs In

We should strive to be fully integrated coherent human beings and, as Christians, perhaps more than any other people, we should be wanting that. I think that’s something that our faith insists of us.

 

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?

 

Is There a War on Science? Reflecting on National Geographic's Cover Story

"The rhetoric of 'more scientific than thou' accomplishes almost nothing, reinforcing existing narratives rather than bringing more people into productive dialogue." Thankfully, magazines like National Geographic are beginning to realize this.

 

Is Science-Religion Conflict Always a Bad Thing? Some Augustinian Considerations

Historian Peter Harrison argues that harmony between faith and science is not as simple as it seems, and some versions of "harmony" can do damage to the Christian faith.

 

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.

 

Can Science and Scripture Be Reconciled?
