When was the last time you went to a birthday party for a dead guy? Here’s your chance. On February 12, evolutionists everywhere will gather for Darwin Day, a celebration of Charles Darwin’s birthday. Darwin can’t make it, but that won’t stop the celebrations planned worldwide.
Given what I’ve written in the previous posts (PART 1, PART 2, PART 3 and PART 4), I think the best model of interaction betw
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.
In my first two posts of this series (PART 1 and PART 2), I laid a foundation with an epistemological account of the nature of explanations. Given that account, let us move to a more specific question: What constitutes a scientific explanation?
Must science and religion always be in conflict? Are they completely unrelated realms of inquiry? Or can they converge to help us discover the nature of reality? Over the course of this week, I will explore the nature of explanations and scientific explanations, and then discuss the relationship between science and theology.

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.
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! Run for your lives!” But do we really need to freak out at the mere mention of evolution?
