Evolution and God 1

February 18, 2008

Evolution and God are not necessarily incompatable.  It’s been interesting reading a few interviews with Dr. Francis Collins who is a leading biologist (head of the Human Genome Project) and also a believing Christian.  It’s comforting to think that even though I’m not quite sure where I stand on the extent of evolution I’m in good company in not dismmissing it entirely.  You can read a short piece by Collins called “Why this scientist believes in God” at CNN.com.  It’s interesting stuff.  I’m hoping at some point to read his book “The Language of God.”  Hearing his thoughs on DNA and God should be incredible.



  1. Genesis 1:24 And God said, “Let the LAND produce living creatures according to their kinds…” I read this for the first time a couple of months ago and I saw evolution in this… God creating evolution.

  2. Hi Selena,
    I’m still not sure how to read Genesis, I worry about building too much on one understanding of scripture. I think that’s one lesson we can learn from Galileo. It is kind of neat to see that though. Thanks for the comment.
