Making Sense of Science and Faith: Evolution’s Place in Christianity.
Peter J. Park (19June2011, Shine Hall- Arumdaun Church)
Evolution is the process of change in organisms through modification of a common ancestor. Does this concept conflict with the foundational beliefs of Christianity? Is evolution really “just a theory”? Tensions have arisen between parties that have adopted different worldviews about science’s place in religion and vice versa. This issue persists in the form of an intellectual battle among politicians, teachers, pastors, and scientists. Today, it is being fought in our nation’s classrooms. What are the potential consequences of this “debate” for our youth? As a Christian and an evolutionary biologist, I care deeply about whether this “controversy” between science and faith can be reconciled. I will share my views. The scientific community accepts that evolution is the unifying framework of all of biology. What does the Christian community believe? Both the Bible and evolution offer answers to life’s most important questions: Why are we here? Who are we related to? How does life change? And, these are questions we begin to ask as children and keep asking as we age. Who is right? Who is wrong? Or, more importantly, what is being misunderstood?
