We have just concluded our first week of the Facts and Faith Symposium. You will not want to miss the next two weeks! But if you are unable to attend, we will be covering the conversation here for you.
Here on Veracity, we have talked a lot about science and faith issues as they relate to Creation as we have been ramping up over the past few weeks in preparation for the Symposium. CAVEAT: For those of you who feel overloaded by science/faith stuff, do not worry. We do blog about other things, too! John and I have just been on a roll lately!
Below is a selection of many of the Veracity blog posts that address various issues regarding Creation. In addition, we will have extra material that seeks to address a number of questions that come up during our conversation. If you have further questions, or things you want to talk about, please put them down in the comments section below. Thanks!
Having a conversation about Creation and the Bible:
Science and the Question of the Existence of God:
Different Christian Views about Creation:
- Handling disagreements within the church over how Christians interpret the Bible differently.
- “Evolution” means different things to different people. What do you mean when you say “evolution”?
- Navigating the Young vs. Old Earth Creationism debate.
- An introduction to Young Earth Creationism(and the battle against compromise).
- Young Earth Creationism and ethics when Christians do apologetics.
- Old Earth Creationism apologetic resources and here.
- Creation as taught in the Book of Job (it is not just in Genesis folks!)
- Global versus “worldwide” flood of Noah.
- Old Earth Creationism versus Evolutionary Creationism (or “Theistic Evolution”) and how to respectfully disagree.
- The problem of animal death and suffering before the Fall: an argument for Young Earth Creationism, and responses from Old Earth and Evolutionary Creationism perspectives.
Thinking about Creation and the Bigger Picture:
- Seven different models on the relationship between the Bible and Science.
- The role of imagination when thinking about Creation from an Evolutionary Creationist perspective.
- The distraction of submarine chasers, Helen Keller, and getting to know God from nature.
- Discussion about Creation issues within the Christian community at large, while hob-nobbing it with well-known Christian thinkers (and eating lots of Carolina barbecue).
- How the non-Christian world views Christian approaches to “Creationism”,… and it ain’t pretty, folks.
