One of the purposes of this blog is to show the compatibility between the theory of evolution and Christianity. Today is the 105th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, and this year is the 155th anniversary of the publication of Origin of Species. Thus, it is Evolution Sunday, making it the perfect opportunity to explore evolution. Evolution Basics is a series on evolution by Dennis Venema, a biologist and a Christian, which explores the basics of evolution. For anyone who wants to learn more this is a great place to start, especially for a creationist since one can look at the evidence without the metaphysical baggage that would be loaded by one of the new atheists. This series is brought by the Biologos Foundation, an organization dedicated to harmonizing faith and science.
