Preview of Searching for Truth in “The Truth Project” — Lesson 5: Science — What Is True?

Because Lesson 5 is a two-part session, I’ve found it difficult to organize my thoughts in just 24 hours.  As a result, my next post may take a few more days to compose.  In the meantime, here’s a preview of my thoughts regarding Del Tackett’s treatment of evolution.  Until then …

    Looking forward to your comments on the "science" installments of the Truth Project. I endured this installment a few weeks ago with a group from my wife's church. I was expecting a stream of straw man arguments, arguments from final consequences, and arguments from personal incredulity (and I was not disappointed). What was disappointing was how badly he misrepresented even the basic scientific meaning of "theory". Del also continued to demonize his favorite bogymen: Darwin, Sagan, and Dawkins. Unfortunately, I received mostly blank stares when I suggested that there could be a middle ground between "the-bible-is-literally-true" and "evolution-means-God-isn't-true". Once again, Del's black and white, all or nothing thinking discourages all meaningful discussion. Thanks again for all you posts on this subject.

    "Endured," eh? Spot on.

    Lesson 6, on revisionist history, looks somewhat interesting. It'd be nice to get on board TTP at some point in the series. 😉
