Both Theology & Science Undermine New Conjectures About God & Evolution
It's easy to see modern evolutionary theory and Christianity as mutually exclusive. After all, evolutionary theory attributes the origin of all the species around us to a blind process fueled by accidental genetic mutations. Christianity teaches that a creative intelligence, God, created all this. Nevertheless, there are many sincere Christians who embrace some form of Darwinism and attempt to reconcile it with their Christian faith. They would say that Darwinism and faith in the God of the Bible are completely compatible.
Are they completely compatible? And are there good reasons for Christians to graft modern Darwinism onto their Christian worldview?
