Dan Hawk's Response to 'God, Darwin and Biology'

October 5, 2014

My pal Dan Hawk wrote up a fantastic response to an article I linked to the other day called God, Darwin and My College Biology Class. Dan’s a Christian, and doesn’t as much disagree with the article as he doesn’t understand why we’re even talking about it:

Over the years I’ve seen other scientists point out potential logical conflicts between religion and evolutionary biology and/or geological evidence, but it hasn’t given me pause in my faith.

Why is that?

Because I don’t think that my religious beliefs explain how or why biology works any more than biology and science explain spirituality, emotion and consciousness.

The emphasis is mine, cause I think that sentence shouldn’t be overlooked.
