Dispatch From the Metanexus Conference

metanexusTom Oord, a professor of theology and philosophy at Northwest Nazarene University, praises Karl Giberson‘s talk on celebrity scientists “who make anemic spiritual or anti-religious pronouncements and yet the public regards their words as highly significant—despite the lack of thoughtful study these scientists have done on the great theological and religious ideas of history.”
In an exchange on Facebook, Oord adds:

Giberson also strongly criticized those who think that the general theory of evolution and Christianity are essentially incompatible. I join him in this criticism. Contrary to some creation scientists, I find no negative moral consequences to believing both that God is Creator and that the general theory of evolution is true.
