BioLogos exists to reconcile Christians to evolution, which today seems to mainly mean Darwinism (“modern science” ).
From their prez Deborah Haarsma:
When people accept the AiG narrative that these scientific conclusions are essential to Christianity, then their faith is often shaken when they encounter the incredible explanatory power of modern science. In fact, we hear from individuals on a daily basis who have experienced a deep crisis of faith when their young-earth creationist beliefs were exposed as scientifically (and biblically) weak. While we are grateful that BioLogos has helped recover and strengthen the faith of these Christians, we mourn the fact that countless others have drifted away from the faith. Young-earth creationist teaching is causing unnecessary harm to the reputation of the Church and creates a stumbling block for people who are considering the Gospel. More.
I don’t know about the Ark. I’m a Catholic; I don’t have to take a position.
This I know: I’ve met many people who lost their faith listening to BioLogos’ Jesus-loves-Darwin-and-so-should-you stuff.
… BioLogos is just so Sunday.
I am not interested in playing Big Victim Stakes with Haarsma, but there are social costs as well as intellectual ones to the cause BioLogos promotes.
In the States, it’s got so bad that even though Darwin invented scientific racism, a major US political party, deafeningly committed to fighting racism, is still pushing for a Darwin Day. And it is virtually impossible to deal with all the lies and hypocrisy surrounding that or the fallout. One cannot even get a serious discussion going.
Anyway, the smart faith-losers woke up and signed on with ID. Story for another day.
Bluntly, the world has moved on from BioLogos’ issues. BioLogos is Templeton’s bad investment.
Still, Ham owes Haarsma a deluxe ticket for the free publicity she has provided.
