image-question4-large.jpgAs we have often stated throughout both our website and this blog, the mission of the BioLogos Foundation is to promote the harmony of faith and modern science, such as the theory of evolution. Often, to help share this vision we focus on the sound evidence behind modern scientific theories and why they do not pose a problem for Christian theology. However, the vision of BioLogos is not simply to show that science and faith are able to coexist. Rather, we believe that both faith and science lead to truth about God and creation.

Just as embracing evolution can lead to a deeper understanding of the Creator, embracing the Creator can lead to a better understanding of the natural world around us. Faith does not simply have to accommodate scientific ideas; it can in fact enrich them. Oxford professor and theologian Alister McGrath puts it beautifully:

“The Christian vision of reality offers us a standpoint from which we may view the natural world, and see certain things that others might indeed regard as puzzling, or strange — such as fine-tuning — as consonant with the greater picture that the Christian has to offer.”

-Alister McGrath, A Fine-Tuned Universe
Though we often use this blog to promote scientific ideas, this does not mean the BioLogos team takes matters of faith and theology lightly. We are committed to God and to promoting a perspective of the origins of life that is both theologically and scientifically sound. Neither science nor religion are an exhaustive source of truth. Rather, each one complements the other in our pursuit of truth.
