Little Changes

Little Changes Book CoverMeet the “rinkidinks”: fictional friends that were “little beasts that wouldn’t come much taller than your knees.” Each was slightly different, and when their species suddenly faced cataclysmic changes to their environment, they were forced to adapt and change in major ways. Evolutionary biologist Dr. Tiffany Taylor has given us an engaging story for children that teaches important mechanisms behind evolutionary change like selection, variation, and speciation—without using the terms themselves. We learn that all living things have undergone a similar process of change and that if we look back far enough, we can find our own family connections from long ago.

Dear BioLogos reader ...

In the escalating vitriol in our culture, “science” and “faith” have found each other on opposite sides of a polarized divide. Truth and community are under attack.

If there is one thing the pandemic has shown us, it is what science can and cannot do. Scientists and doctors have done amazing things during the pandemic—identified the virus, treated the disease, and developed safe vaccines that work.

But in these polarized times, science can’t reduce anger, forgive sins, build mutual respect, or fill us with compassion for others.

Science alone can’t give us hope. Faith can. Join BioLogos today in reaching a world desperate for hope. Your tax-deductible donation will be the difference between someone encountering misinformation, or a thoughtful, truthful, and hopeful Christian perspective that shows faith and science working hand in hand.
