For two years now, educators and members of the clergy have been working together to bridge the gap between science and religion by organizing an annual teach-in, timed to coincide with the Feb. 12 anniversary of Darwin's birth. The event began in 2006 as Evolution Sunday and was the product of the 2004 Clergy Letter Project â€“ an open letter organized by Michael Zimmerman, biologist and dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Butler University in Indianapolis, Ind., after a Wisconsin school board aimed to pass anti-evolution measures.
The letter, challenging what Zimmerman calls â€śbiblical literalism,â€ť states: â€śWe believe that the theory of evolution is a foundational scientific truth, one that has stood up to rigorous scrutiny and upon which much of human knowledge and achievement rests.â€ť...
- â€śThe argument we make is this: When you believe in millions of years of evolution and add it to the Bible, you actually have to change what the Bible clearly says,â€ť explained Ken Ham, the founder of the museum and CEO of the apologetics ministry Answers in Genesis, in an interview with The Christian Post. â€śYou have to reinterpret it. That unlocks the door to say that you donâ€™t take this as written. You reinterpret it from outside influences, which means that you tell the next generation that you canâ€™t take the Bible as written. So you just undermine biblical authority.â€ť -
Creation foundations in no way diminish the accuracy and logic of a scientist. The only hindrance it creates is that the evolutionary believing scientists try to kick you out for your scientific presuppositions.
