Maybe there’s never much religion news on Superbowl Sunday, so…
From Slate, we learn:
How an evangelical creationist came to accept evolution.
The article focuses on Kramer, 27, who would seem to be a Christian Darwinist: “Kramer found a way to have his faith and Darwin too.”
Interesting. Darwin didn’t find the way, but then what did he know?
As Slate puts it,
Of course, Kramer’s view is not everyone’s. Most people who study evolution see no evidence of or need for God in the history of life on Earth. For them, something like BioLogos is a stopgap, the training wheels you put on your bike before realizing you can ride without them. But the fact that there is a group that considers itself both creationist and pro-evolution shows that America’s divide over evolution is not inevitable—that evangelicals, historically some of the people most resistant to a scientific worldview, can find room in their belief systems for evolution.
And that’s something worth rejoicing over. More.
Trust Slate to get BioLogos ultimately right. Training wheels for pure naturalist atheism. (They may be the last to know.)
