Now I'm less comfortable as I wonder why we Christians think it's okay to dump the responsibility for defending our religion from crackpottery on the scientists. This article does a good job of encouraging all Christians to think through how we tell our story in the context of the science which the vast majority embrace.
Maybe it's timely for the many of us who take the Bible seriously but not literally to include ways of talking about our beliefs in a way that communicates our wonder at the created, evolved world as well as our sense that what has been learned through millenia of scientific inquiry serves to expand our ideas about God, not diminish them.
I'm glad to have seen Elizabeth Stoker's story. It's a long-ish read, but it's shorter than the Nye/Ham debate. Photo Credit: ABC News
