Darrel Falk Speaks

Darrel Falk, a biology professor at Point Loma Nazarene University in California who’s known for being an anti-creationist, spoke to an all-Christian audience about “Bridging the Worlds of Faith and Biology” last night at Eastern Nazarene College in Massachusetts. Beginning with Scripture and ending with prayer, the central part of Falk’s talk focused on evolution—or what he calls “gradual creation”—as he explained the role of chromosomal mutation in the process. “God has guided creation to where it has gone, but has not micro-managed all the details,” he said. And just like enjoying a beautiful sunset can be a way of meditating on God, Falk said, exploring evolution can be a “worship experience because it’s God creation and God’s truth.”
Falk, who also addressed the evolution-creation controversy in his 2004 book Coming to Peace With Science, is currently working with Dr. Francis Collins, director of the Human Genome Project, and Rick Warren, founder and pastor of the Saddleback Church, to address the divide between science and evangelical Christianity. —Heather Ciras
