How Science and Religion Converge Rather Than Conflict – Part 4 of 5

In these last two posts, we will move toward the convergence of science and theology in providing knowledge of reality. However, before we discuss the proper relationship between science and theology, we must recognize an obstacle: definitions. When we talk about science and theology, we must know what we mean by each. This is no easy task.

Evolution: The Big Question

Brett offers insight on the evidence--so the next time you hear about a major discovery for evolution, don't be intimidated. Why should we spend time on defining evolution (see “What is Evolution?”)? Here’s why. When we look at the evidence offered for macroevolution, there’s a huge, massive, gi-normous problem. Virtually every shred of evidence offered is evidence of microevolution. Change in finch beak size. Changing colors in peppered moths. Additional wings on fruit flies. Changing human genes.

What Is Evolution?

Should a Christian freak out at the mention of evolution? Well, it depends on what someone means when they use the word. Most Christians experience a violent reaction when they even hear the word “evolution.” Alarms go off. Defenses go up. “Oh no, it’s evolution!
