Just as I thought ...

... Evolution Book Sees No Science-Religion Gap. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I went to Catholic schools and I was taught evolution in biology class. When I was in college, Teilhard de Chardin (whose Phenomenon of Man had an introduction by Julian Huxley) was big. I'm still something of a Teilhard disciple. But we'd better not go there just now. This was intended as a brief post.

    "There is no conflict between science and religion. Full stop. Q.E.D. So there."

    Boy, Frank, you sure know how to take the fun out of blogging.

  2. Sorry about that, Peter.

    Some of the members of my Protestant religion interpret the Bible to say that evolution is a lie.

    In response to them, I say: This is an unnecessary interpretation. What practical good does this view do for believers? None. Instead, this harmful "dispute about words" only tempts believers to think that the Bible contains error.

    My hope for those so tempted is that they would understand that it is only this interpretation which contains the error and not necessarily the Bible.

    Through faith we understand that evolution was framed by the word of God. (My paraphrase of Heb 3:11.)

    My faith is in no way challenged by evolution, or any other science.
