Did God create the world? And if so, how did He do it? What evidence does nature provide? Where did human beings come from? What does the Bible teach about creation? Without doubt such questions generate the most heat in discussions about science and faith.
There are many reasons why these issues are so contentious — they impinge on hermeneutics (how we interpret the Bible), epistemology (how we come by “knowledge”), the history and philosophy of science, as well as aspects of archaeology, palaeontology, biology, astronomy, geology, chemistry, physics, and even mathematics.
But perhaps the main source of controversy and confusion stems from the instinctive sense that where we come from determines who we are and how we should then live. And this underlying feeling, right or wrong, often makes it hard for participants in the debate to remain even handed and objective. We hope you find this collection of resources helpful.
CiS – Faraday Lectures:
The authors of the articles and books recommended above all espouse a robust orthodox Christianity, and most would go further and classify themselves as solidly evangelical in their hermeneutics and opinion on the authority of scripture.
On the issue of “How did God create the world?”, many of the links above reflect the dominant view amongst Christians professionally active in academia, which might loosely be characterised as “theistic evolution”. However, amongst the general Christian evangelical public other views on evolution or the age of the earth are also quite common, particularly in the USA and in Australia. Our US sister organisation, the ASA, has written a helpful ASA General Statement on Creation, summarising those views.
We have also compiled a large list of Young Earth Creationism, Old Earth Creationism and Intelligent Design Links.
