Biologos

There is a new science web site out that more closely matches my outlook on the interaction between science and religion than most others, even better than RTB in my opinion. It is called BioLogos and was founded by Francis Collins and involves Karl Giberson as well. I've read recent books by both of these men, The Language of God by Collins and Saving Darwin by Giberson. Both of these books were instrumental in keeping me from dumping Christianity as incompatible with reality. They are quite sharp with the science and are Christians at the same time. I think I'm going to enjoy following their blog too.

From the blog:

Francis Collins on the Goals of BioLogos

In a recent interview with Christianity Today, available from the publication's website, Francis Collins discusses what he hopes the BioLogos Foundation can accomplish through its website and other projects.

"My hope would be that we are hub of activity," says Collins. "There are other groups that have been pursuing these kinds of questions and trying to seek harmony instead of conflict, but they are relatively few and not all that visible. If there's something we can do to try to help build those links, we'd love to do that."

Our website, www.biologos.org, provides a wealth of other interviews and presentations by Francis, Karl, and Darrel that present the goals and ideas of BioLogos and a harmony between the worlds of science and religion. We encourage you to take the time to explore them, along with our other resources of recommended books, media collections, and articles.
