Historical vs. Observational Theology

Ken Ham has tried to make a distinction between historical and observational science. He ought, therefore, to accept that we must make the same distinction in theology, if he is to be consistent, don’t you think? And yet we find he himself quoting the Bible as though it can simply be assumed to provide evidence [Read More...]

New Journal: Science, Religion, and Culture

Heather Wax was one of a couple of people to draw my attention to the launch of a new peer-reviewed journal,┬áScience, Religion, and Culture.┬áThe first issue includes contributions from scholars like Keith Ward and Gregg Caruso.   [Read more...]

Changing Science
