Skip to comments.The Dirty Little Secret Is Out: Religious Faith and Evolution Are Incompatible
Posted on 03/20/2009 7:59:40 PM PDT by GodGunsGuts
In a recent book review, Jerry Coyne, professor of ecology and evolution at the University of Chicago, admitted that the secular worldview of macroevolution (the development of complex life from simpler forms) is at odds with Christian faith...

It is entirely possible to give due credit and respect to both, at the same time.
However they are not at odds with Evolutionary Apologists.
Thought you guys might be interested.
Well, there goes the Roman Catholic Church.
It shows you what the Evos really think about old-age compromisers.
Why are so many so certain that God would not have used evolution for his creation process?
As Isaiah quoted God, “My thoughts are not your thoughts.”
I’m off to the movies. Thought you might be interesested in the VERY REVEALING comments of Jerry Coyne—GGG
Evolution is natural man’s thoughts.
What moron accepts theological conclusions from professors of ecology?
Good post billy, lots of us believers in Jesus Christ believe this.
God gave me a brain. I use it. The world is more than 6500 yrs. old. There are 70 branches of science that testify to this. More than abundance of evidence. Yet, you are obsessed with evolution. Bizarre. And here come the anti-catholic rants. Flame on fool.
Stupid conclusion. Belief in God does not preclude any evolution. After all, with God all things are ossible. Also, how then would a scientist define how evolution could evolve from Nothing????
It is not totally incompatible to believe in a God and to also have some belief in evolution/creation. The Catholic viewpoint is that evolution can be a legitimate explanation of the development of mammals, yet to be a Christian, one must understand and believe in the ultimate concept that God had to create something which evolved, that nothing comes from nothing. Also, at some time God infused a spirit/soul into humanity, and eventually began to reveal Himself to those humans.
How dare Dr. Coyne tell me that I can not believe in God and evolution at the same time. Just because his faith does not allow him to believe in science does not mean my faith can not. Coyne needs to learn to look outside of his narrow little mind.
“Belief” in evolution does not require faith.
If you believe in Christian doctrine, Faith is required for Grace. Without Faith there is no Grace.
Evolution has no such construct.
==What moron accepts theological conclusions from professors of ecology?
That’s professor of ecology —AND— evolution. That makes him a double moron.
Enjoy. I would highly recommend Grand Torino.
