THANK GOD FOR EVOLUTION

Michael Dowd

Dowd explores the relationship between science and religion, showing that one can accept evolution in a way that strengthens rather than undermines religious faith and values. He proposes what he calls evolution theology. Dowd pastored three churches and organized green living and sustainable neighborhood projects on both coasts before setting out in 2002 with his new bride, atheist science writer and evolutionary humanist Connie Barlow, to live on the road full time. Since then, the couple has traveled North America non-stop, preaching and teaching their unique “Gospel of Evolution” to both religious and non-religious audiences. New York Times article

This highlights how the conflict is not usually between scientists and religion. Even Newton was a devout Anglican. The conflict is between the bible and the truth. Reconcile it however you want, there ain't no crystal spheres and the earth is 4 billion years old. The bible is dead wrong on just about everything.
