Guessoum interview

Stuart Elliot pointed me to an interesting interview with Nidhal Guessoum online, concerning Islam and science.

I met Guessoum last month at the AAAS meeting. Interestingly, I was responding to a question after my talk, and I gave Guessoum as an example. He turned out to be in the audience. (I had not met him in person before.)

Anyway, Guessoum adopts about as liberal an Islam as you can get while retaining some faith in God, the supernatural qualities of the Quran, and so forth. He just came out with a book that I should read. And from what I’ve heard about it, even he is reluctant to go the full distance in accepting naturalistic, Darwinian evolution. (He insists on some traces of divine guidance, perhaps in an “ID-lite” form.)
