Dr. Francis Collins
, former head of the Human Genome Project
and author of The Language of God
, recently unveiled
the new website of The BioLogos Foundation
, a private organization (funded by the John Templeton Foundation
) which “promotes the search for truth in both the natural and spiritual realms, and seeks to harmonize these different perspectives.” In essence, the BioLogos
concept is virtually indistinguishable from an evolutionary creationist or theistic evolutionary perspective, although I’m fairly confident that there are some nuances that are unique to the philosophy to which Collins and his board co-members hold. Two of those board members just happen to be Eastern Nazarene College’s Karl Giberson
, author of Saving Darwin: How to Be a Christian and Believe in Evolution
, and Point Loma
Nazarene University biology professor Darrel Falk
, author of Coming to Peace with Science: Bridging the Worlds Between Faith and Biology
The website features a phenomenal FAQ that attempts to address many of the common questions and objections that Christians have in regard to accepting evolution in light of Scripture. It also features a page that, in the coming months, should prove to be an excellent source for teaching resources, audio/video lectures and presentations, online journals and essays, and links to additional websites and books.
After checking out The BioLogos Foundation’s website, be sure to also check out Steve Douglas’ comments regarding the BioLogos concept.
