Evolution for Believers (12008)

SKU: 12008
  • Ever since Darwin, the science of evolution has been taken to be destructive of Christian faith. But insofar as it is destructive, it hits Darwinism, as distinct from the science of evolution, before it hits its intended target. Moreover, whereas faith, properly understood, comes out unscathed from that attack, Darwinism cannot. Only a studied oversight of what is meant by the science of evolution and an equally studied ignorance about Christian faith can see the two to be in an irresolvable conflict. The resolution of that conflict is extremely simple. Insofar as Darwin's theory is science, its truth rests on considerations that are quantitative, either concretely or at least in principle. The propositions of Christian creed are never such as to be subject to a quantitative or experimental test. This is a strictly rational test of truth, which, if heeded, would save Darwinists from becoming the promoters of Darwinism. The same test imposes itself even more stringently on believers for whom God is Reason infinite, his Incarnate Son is the Logos (a name that must do something with logicality), and who must consider themselves to be made in the image of God.
