Creation & Evolution

Old-Earth or Evolutionary Creation? Two ISCAST reviews of this important new book on origins

Old-Earth or Evolutionary Creation? is an important new book on the vexed problem of reconciling mainstream evolutionary science with serious theological and biblical interpretation. This book documents an extended discussion between people from two US Christian organisations, one rejecting the mainstream view and one accepting it, resulting in contrasting approaches to early chapters of Genesis. The discussion is moderated by authors from the Southern Baptist Convention.

New statistics on human origins

No, there are no new statistics about the origin of humans, but there are new statistics about what people believe about origins. A recent Gallup poll in the United States reveals that while 19% of people believe God had no part in the development of human beings, by far the majority see the hand of God at work. This majority is split evenly between young-earth and theistic evolutionary views. More details are here on the Gallup site.
