Hey gang. I know this page has been rather dormant this summer, but I hope to get it up and running again with new and exciting essays and articles related to faith and science issues.
Loving the Ancient Faith and Modern Science

Here's a deeply troubling story out of Texas about a measles outbreak due to a lack of vaccination caused by the false teachings of Kenneth Copeland and his daughter at their megachurches. These snake oil salesmen/saleswomen are not only dangerous spiritually, but they're also very dangerous physically.

A strong but irenic push back at Peter Enns' The Evolution of Adam from James K. Smith. As much as I love Enns, I think Smith makes several valid and necessary points here.

This is one of the best science articles I've read in ages. Not only does it demolish the supposed deep differences with the various "higher' mammalian  species, it shows how deeply "centric" we are in our seeking after what constitutes intelligence. This isn't just an interspecies problem, it's a deeply transcultural human problem. Absolutely brilliant piece.

I can attest to several examples of this pseudo-scientific nonsense being taught and sold to Christian parents and poor children being force-fed these blatant lies. I worked in Christian retail and we sold these materials on a regular basis.

It seems this reviewer doesn't quite understand what the "god of the gaps" is. Or else he gladly accepts it as a paradigm worth following. Either way, he doesn't get what methodological naturalism is in contrast to philosophical naturalism. It's weird to realize that I used to follow this fundamentalist ministry quite closely. My how I've changed.

Here's an excellent article about science denialism, whether having to do with evolution, climate change, or vaccination. What strikes me in reading this piece is how cross ideological this phenomenon is. While rejection of evolution and anthropogenic climate change tends to exist much more on the right side of the political spectrum, anti vaccination advocates mostly come from the progressive side of the aisle. It seems intellectual obscurantism is a very bipartisan affair.

Sorry for the long absence friends. My life has been just a wee bit crazy since I was promoted to a new position here at GCTS. I look forward to posting more science and faith articles and essays in the days ahead. In fact I have two excellent articles I'll post today. I hope y'all enjoy them!

An excellent essay featuring the splendid thoughts of John Walton and Dennis Venema on how to read Genesis 1 and some introductory thoughts on genetics and human evolution as it relates to Adam and Eve and what that might mean.

Meanwhile, if you or anyone you know IS considering homeschooling, PLEASE consider this resource. It's absolutely fantastic and well worth your while.

"a billion and a half heart beats" may be the basic formula for all of our lifetimes... A wonderful article from NPR about a possible formula for lifespan regulated by scale, whether its animal or plant.

A fascinating article about how the terminology of "evolution" and "natural selection" have actually hurt, not helped, because of all the baggage those terms have come to carry historically. I think I agree.

Loving the Ancient Faith and Modern Science
Introduction
A page dedicated to the proposition that science and Christian faith do not have to be antagonistic to each other. We'll be posting articles from well known Christian authors, some of whom are themselves scientists and some who are theologians. We look forward to thoughtful dialogue as we search deeply into God's word and God's world.
