Responding to Intelligent Design

There have been a lot of scientific responses to Intelligent Design. But it is important to articulate theological objections as well. The quote above is based on a comment I made here on this blog. The point is a simple one: Either God can create a universe that can organize itself, in which case the [Read More...]

Believing Genesis

The above is based on a Facebook comment I wrote in response to a question that pitted the Biblical creation account against “Darwinism”: It is indeed a false dichotomy. Moreover, if you are talking about the details then you have to believe the order in Genesis 1 and the different order in Genesis 2, and [Read More...]

If God Created Humans From Dirt…

But the biggest is that it denies that God so transcends our human comprehension that God can only be pointed to through symbols. The final editor of Genesis presumably understood this. He placed side by side two depictions [Read More...]

Creationist Quote Mining

This demotivational poster about young-earth creationist and Intelligent Design proponent quote-mining was inspired (or perhaps I should say demotivated?) by recent discussions here on the blog. [Read more...]

God and Evolution: Your Options

Here is another comment on this blog that seemed worth sharing in a post, this time from Stuart32: It’s not a question of evolution versus Christianity.
