Pardon the Dust

And you thought Rethinking the αlpha and Ωmega was retired.

I’m well aware it’s been a while since my last blog post.  I was less aware of actually how long it’s been:  over one year!  I got burned out a bit making the transition from Blogger to WordPress, and then I had to focus my energies on work and family for a spell.  However, I’ve recently begun to find some balance.  For what it’s worth, I’ve begun reformatting posts, creating categories, adding tags, etc., in order to make Rethinking the αlpha and Ωmega a more pleasurable reading experience.

And that’s not all:  I’ve begun writing again!  My first series for The BioLogos Foundation just hit the streets today; so enjoy the first of five installments on confronting fears one may experience when considering an evolutionary creationist paradigm.  Be sure to look for the remaining installments over the next few weeks.

If you like what you read, feel free to throw out some ideas of what you’d like to see me write about next.  Keep in mind that I intend to continue blogging here about the Ωmega side of things for a while in order to balance out the website, but more αlpha-related material will likely be forthcoming at BioLogos.  I will, of course, direct the faithful reader (if there are still any out there!) to BioLogos when additional series are published.

    I just finished reading Ken Ham’s latest (?) book: “Six Days: The Age of the Earth and the Decline of the Church” (Master Books, 2013). In his book, Ken ham attempts to rebut writings and/or videos by the following Christian supporters of an old earth and/or biological evolution:

    Denis Alexander, Mike Beidler, Francis Collins, William Lane Craig, William Dembski, Perer Enns, Darrel Falk, Karl Giberson, Deborah Haarsma, Hank Hanegraaff, Daniel Harlow, Daniel Harrell, Tim Keller, John Lennox, Tremper Longman III, Alister McGrath, J. P. Moreland, Hugh Ross, John Sailhamer, Jeffrey Schloss, John Schneider, Bruce Waltke, John Walton, and N. T. Wright

    You are in good company, Mike. Of these, only William Dembski, Peter Enns, and Hugh Ross got more coverage than you did. Ken Ham must consider you a formidable threat to YEC.

    My favorite part is on p. 213:

    “Of course, the next step in Beidler’s argument is to explain away Adam and Eve—and he does just that. He writes that sin is still a reality even without an historical Adam and Eve. “In fact,” he writes, “one could argue that evolutionary biology provides an even more powerful paradigm for explaining the source of mankind’s sinful nature in our day than the biblical text does.” What a shocking conclusion from a professing Christian—evolution explains man’s sinful nature better than the Word of God, the Creator of the universe. As you have seen throughout this book, this is the nonsense that is pervading the Church more and more—no wonder the Church and the nation as a whole is in trouble.”

    Personally, I happen to agree with you and Daryl Domning (“Original Selfishness: Original Sin and Evil in the Light of Evolution”). If only it were true that this nonsense is pervading the church more and more.

    Keep up the good work (and best wishes in your search for a suitable next job).
