Wheaton College's John Walton on why Genesis 1 shouldn't be read as a science text but taken seriously for what it is.

John Walton is Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton college and author of numerous books including The Lost World of Genesis One. He is a specialist in comparing the literature and culture of the Bible with that of the Ancient Near East. 

He sat down with CPX to discuss approaching the Bible's creation story from an Ancient Near Eastern perspective.

An excerpt published on the BioLogos Forum of Loren Haarsma's essay, 'Evolution and Divine Revelation: Synergy, not Conflict, in Understanding Morality', asks whether evolution compromises human morality.

Once we have a scientific hypothesis for how something exists, it is tempting to make the philosophical inference that this is also why it exists. Richard Dawkins (1976), as well as Michael Ruse and Edward O. Wilson (1993), do this in the evolution of human morality.

"The most persistant misapprehension about God and creation, however, is that the knowledge of causal mechanism automatically excludes any possibility that God is acting in a particular situation."
