Jeff Hardin (below) is Chairman of the University of Wisconsin’s Zoology Department and a scientist who recognizes the reality of evolution.
He’s also a Christian, who believes in the claims of the Bible.
Hardin’s knowledge of science leads him to reject literalist interpretations of the Bible, like Young Earth Creationism, which make claims about science and nature that are distinctly at odds with the evidence. When the Bible is read in such a fashion as to make it conflict with reality, he believes, it is read wrongly. And he makes it his mission to show that the two, science and religion, are highly compatible.
