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...]

Progressive Religion

Although it has no doctrinal creed as a condition of membership, the Progressive Christian Alliance (whose Facebook page I’ve recently begun to help curate) does have this statement of faith: We believe in God, whose love is the source of all life and the desire of our lives whose love was given a human face [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...]

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...]

Does Conflict Drive Evolution?

Today's Bizarro comic is funny. But having spent some time today talking with someone who genuinely seemed to believe that biological evolution meant a fish suddenly sprouting legs or even turning into a human being, it seems necessary to address the popular misunderstanding that could be reinforced by the cartoon. Many of us have wished [Read More...]

Antievolutionism is a Tool of Satan

I came across a post I wrote a while back, and thought I would share part of it again in the form of an image. It is a response to a text image that called evolution a tool of Satan. [Read more...]
