They promote a view known as “theistic evolution” or Read More ›

Two Views of Evolution, and Why They Don’t Mix

For a year now, I’ve been discussing my book Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed with my friend Hans Vodder, who thinks I got it wrong.

Most have understood that Darwin’s theory has profound theological implications, but their responses have varied dramatically. Some religious believers have rejected it outright; others, often called “theistic evolutionists,” have sought Read More ›
