Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)

Date: 08/31/2010

One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get annoyed so much by those who write on theology and evolution. It's usually just deism and ...

Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism? (RJS)

Date: 08/24/2010

This is the final post from John F. Haught's book  Making Sense of Evolution: Darwin, God, and the Drama of Life . The last chapter of the book deals with the concept of deity - who or what is this God that imparts meaning to the underlying facts of the material world? I have been asked on a number of occasions, by e-mail, in comments, and in person, how my view of evolutionary cre ...

Evolution in the Key of D: Duty and Devotion (RJS)

Date: 08/19/2010

The next two chapters of John F. Haught's book  Making Sense of Evolution: Darwin, God, and the Drama of Life deal with the topics of duty and devotion. While Haught's discussion of death left something to be desired, his discussion here is worth some thought and conversation.   Evolutionary explanations of duty and devotion reduce both to nothing more than an impulse ge ...

Evolution in the Key of D: Depth and Death (RJS)

Date: 08/17/2010

This has been a busy summer for me - much more so than usual - and it has taken me a while to work through John F. Haught's book  Making Sense of Evolution: Darwin, God, and the Drama of Life .  I find this book something of a mixed bag.  It is interesting and useful for the perspective Haught brings to thinking about a layered approach to meaning within creation, but it i ...

Evolution: A Remarkable History (not by RJS)

Date: 07/29/2010

Yes, you read the title for this post right. This is SMcK and not RJS, but this post is on evolution. Why? Because I just finished reading Evolution: The Remarkable History of a Scientific Theory (Modern Library Chronicles) , and found the book's story -- and the theory of evolution's history -- fascinating. Whether you dip into the Cuvier or Lamarck, or whether you focus on Darwin' ...

Evolution in the Key of D: Direction (RJS)

Date: 08/03/2010

We have taken something of a detour the last several weeks, but I would like to get back to John F. Haught's book  Making Sense of Evolution: Darwin, God, and the Drama of Life .  One of the common complaints about evolution from the point of view of faith is its purported rambling waste and its meaningless wander. One of the aspects stressed by evolutionary materialists is its ...

Should Pollsters Go to Seminary? (RJS)

Date: 07/27/2010

Pete Enns has a new article up at the Huffington Post: Evolution and Religion: Why Religion Pollsters Should Go to Seminary First . Ignore the forum (especially the ads on the sidebar) and read the article - this is an interesting question.  Just a paragraph here, condensed, to get a taste. Commenting on a poll commissioned by the Center for Public Policy of Virginia Commonwealth Uni ...
