Trust in God and in the Human Mind

I recently came across this meme image with a quote from Ken Miller. I also saw that Jerry Coyne (blogging about an interview Miller gave) is once again struggling to grasp the basic idea that not all people have the same ideas about God and theology. Of course, I am not sure that he wants to [Read More...]

Ham’s False Dichotomy

Ham’s false dichotomy between a system where “man decides truth” and “God’s word is truth” serves well to keep his audience skeptical of both evolution and mainstream geology. Ultimately, however, we must deal with the fact that to read and understand God’s word, we utilize the same cognitive abilities that allow us to reconstruct the [Read More...]

“Just a Theory”

Jerry Coyne shared the above video, which features professor Tim White addressing with what a creationist student probably thought was a clever objection. [Read more...]

Unreasonable Demand of Antievolutionists

The above image comes from EvolutionEvidence.org, which has a whole page dedicated to intermediate fossils and the evidence they provide for biological evolution. [Read more...]

Barth on Evolution

Karl Barth wrote the above in a letter to his niece, which you can read on the Faith and Theology blog. The creation story deals only with the becoming of all things, and therefore with the revelation of God, which is inaccessible to science as such. The theory of evolution deals with what has become, [Read More...]

Evolution Misunderstood or Misrepresented?

The British Center for Science Education shared this example of how the ACE curriculum depicts evolution: I’ve encountered people who genuinely accept this depiction as being what evolution posits. If you are one of them and you do not know how the bottom is very different from what biologists mean when they talk about evolution, [Read More...]

Biologos AMA

Biologos announced on their website that they will be having an “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit: On June 24, Deborah Haarsma, Jim Stump, and Dennis Venema will be participating in an AMA where for two hours, Redditors will have the opportunity to ask questions and receive responses from our experts. If you’re interested in [Read More...]

The Evolution of God

The Onion had a piece about how the deity of humans evolved from a chimpanzee deity. While comical, the piece deserves some serious comment. First, in making a connection with biological evolution, it plays into the popular misunderstanding that human beings evolved from other primates which currently exist, whether chimpanzees or others. Second, there is [Read More...]

Darwin’s Witnesses

Whether it is the Christian message or the advances of science, there is always good news and bad news that can be shared. Among science-denying religious people, there is a lot focus on what they consider the “bad news” in evolutionary biology. If you were an evangelist for mainstream science, what would you share as [Read More...]

Selective Rejection of Evidence

Young-earth creationists say that housecats, tigers, and all felines descended from one pair of cat “kind” after the flood, positing ultra-fast evolution in order to do so. They also say that humans could not have descended from a common ancestor with chimpanzees and other primates even over millions of years. The hypocrisy is astounding, as [Read More...]
