In the aftermath of the creation debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham I wanted to offer up some of my old writings about creation and evolution. These were originally posted at The Veritas Network, a blog now populated by my friend, Greg Gibson, and worthy of your following here. I have reposted them here on my blog, so you can brush up on your understanding of creation versus evolution.
These articles are a progressive introduction to the debate, moving forward in this fashion:
The first article takes a look at the Hatfields and McCoys and highlights the most important factor in any creation debate: presuppositions.
Then I explored what Ken Ham kept mentioning in the debate last night: science as a field is based upon borrowed Christian principles.
Then we look at the various Christian positions taken within the creation debate.
Lastly, I attempt to provide what I believe to be a theological minimum for orthodox belief within the creation debate – what must you believe to be standing on the ground of orthodoxy?
God is glorified in these debates by those who represent Him and His Word faithfully and winsomely. Know what you believe and why you believe it. Then offer grace and love to those with whom you disagree.
