Where Science and Faith Converge


  • Darwin’s Problem: The Origin of Language

    April 13, 2015

    Language can bind us together and language can separate us. One of the most frustrating things I encountered on a speaking tour in Lima, Peru, last spring was struggling to communicate with my Peruvian audience and hosts, many of whom spoke only Spanish.

  • Q&A: Is the Methuselah Star Older Than the Universe?

    April 9, 2015

    This Methuselah star currently ranks as the star with the oldest measured age (14.46 ± 0.31 billion years).1 However, this age measurement is in apparent conflict with the best measured age for the universe (13.79 ± 0.06 billion years).2

  • Q&A: Did God Make Time Stand Still for Joshua?

    April 6, 2015

    Joshua 10 is a bit ambiguous about the nature of the “long day.” It is possible to interpret the event as an extra-long night rather than an extra-long day. In fact, most Old Testament scholars assert that the extra-long night is the most likely interpretation. Furthermore, the original Hebrew text does not require any adjustment in the positions or movements of the Sun, Moon, or Earth.

    When it comes to science-faith discussions, the age of the earth is one of the most contentious topics among evangelicals and conservative Christians. Most of the scientific debate surrounding this issue centers on astronomy and geology, but young-earth creationists have recently turned to biology to make their case for a young Earth.

    March 19, 2015

    Popular Bible preacher John Hagee has authored a book and produced a movie by the same name, Four Blood Moons (in theaters March 23 only). On the film’s website the San Antonio megachurch pastor states, “The heavens are ‘God’s billboard.’ He’s been sending signals to earth, and we haven’t been picking them up.”

    Anyone working on a home improvement project knows how important it is to have “the right tool for the right job.” This maxim also applies to science.

    Is Genesis scientifically credible? According to the common narrative in our culture, scientific advance has rendered Genesis (and other creation accounts found in the Bible) untenable.

    From time to time, biochemists make discoveries that change the way we think about how life works. In a recent paper, Ian S. Dunn, a researcher at CytoCure, argues that biomolecules (such as DNA, RNA, and proteins) comprised of “molecular alphabets” (such as nucleotides and amino acids) are a universal requirement for life

  • Q&A: Does the Fourth Commandment Support the Calendar-Day View of Creation?

    February 5, 2015

    The Hebrew word translated “day” (yôm) in Genesis 1 has four distinct literal definitions: (1) part of the daylight hours, for example, noon to 3 PM; (2) all of the daylight hours; (3) one rotation period of Earth—currently 24 hours; and (4) an extended, but finite period of time.
