How Do I Read the Bible? Let Me Count the Ways

en español

by Peter M. J. Hess, Director, Religious Community Outreach

Opponents of evolution often claim that their opposition is based upon a lack of supporting scientific evidence. In reality, their objection frequently stems from a separate issue: how to read the Bible and interpret the view of nature it projects.

Review: Creation and Evolution: A Conference with Pope Benedict XVI

Creation and Evolution: A Conference with Pope Benedict XVI in Castel Gandolfo

Awaited with curiosity since initial news reports of this meeting, this book proves doubly disappointing. It is regrettable that top Catholic leaders seem drawn toward "intelligent design" (ID); but it is disturbing that they seem not even aware of relevant and better thinking within their own church.

Origin Myths

by Robert Carneiro

In the beginning there was a period of Chaos, when air, water, and matter were combined in a formless mixture. On this floated a Cosmic Egg, from which arose Gaea (Earth) and Uranus (Sky). These deities created the earth and its creatures and the Sun, Moon, and Stars. Thus the Greeks accounted for creation.

Why NCSE Should Be Involved in the Science-Religion Dialog

Why NCSE Should Be Involved in the Science-Religion Dialog
Author(s):

Issue: 
1–2
From time to time at NCSE, we hear questions from skeptical, agnostic, and atheistic members who wonder what we are doing getting involved with people of faith. Creationism in its several forms is, after all, largely motivated by religion. Many of the household names in evolutionary science are quite vocal about the death of religion as they see it, while others seem to see religion as tolerable as long as it is limited to private, individual faith or to informing moral and ethical decisions. So why would NCSE want to be involved in science and religion conversations?
