Clergy Letter for Imams (and More From the Evolutionary Blogosphere)

Open Parachute and Panda’s Thumb both report on the expansion of the Clergy Letter Project to include Muslim clergy voices in support of evolution.

Also related, Sabio Lantz tells how evolution cost him his job.

Jerry Coyne discusses the laryngeal nerve as evidence for evolution.

Biologos continues the series on Mesopotamian sacred geography and the Bible. This installment focuses on the “firmament.”

And slightly further removed, IO9 has a post on Gödel’s ontological argument for the existence of God. Here it is, in case you are wondering (click through for explanation in more prosaic form).

    Hey James, thanx for the mention.  Do you have any YEC (Young Earth Creationists) at your University?  Even if not, I imagine you get your fair amount of hate mail from these folks, eh?  As you see by my post,  I lectured on Alternative Medicine and pissed of the Orthodox medicine folks, and then lectured on Genetics and pissed off the YEC.   Can’t win, eh?  Your approach to your faith invites attacks from both sides too.  I wonder if some of us just like living on the naughty edge?  :-)

    @Sabio, there are (or have been in the past) a couple of young-earth creationists around campus, among the faculty I mean. But I don’t know of any presently or since I’ve been at Butler in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

    There are definitely some students with that viewpoint!
