Regular readers of this blog will note that I have devoted a number of posts to providing an apologetic for the compatibility of the theory of evolution, big bang cosmology and Christian theology.

In pursuing these ideas, my intention has not been to suggest that these naturalistic theories of origins are infallible.  Rather, I am simply attempting to be intellectually honest with the data that is available, recognizing that these categories are currently the best we have for describing the universe in which we live and how it developed in cosmological history.  In fact, in private conversations I have repeatedly asserted by certainty that in years to come, these theories will be modified or even supplanted by others that better describe the evidence.

But the beautiful thing, I think, is that Christian theology is not harmed by these ways of understanding the development of the universe.  My purpose in these posts, after all, is not to necessarily support naturalistic theories of origins, but rather to show how Christian faith and belief is not affected by the winds of scientific change.  As Christian faith is necessarily transcendent of all philosophical fads and trends, so it should be apparent that current scienitifc theories should be of no negative consequence to the way in which Christians theologize, and are in fact fertile ground for the intesection of fresh and creative theological development.

So…what I would like to do is get some feedback.  I find few individuals in my daily life that I can engage on this issue, so I would like to open up the blog to my readers.  What I am looking for is questions, comments, etc. about the intersection of science and theology.  

Don't buy that theology and modern scientific theories can be compatible?  Tell me why, and I will devote a post to responding (and we can even make it more interactive, if desired).   

Have a question about what this interaction actually looks like?  Leave a comment and we will discuss it.

Curious what relevance such a discussion has to the gospel?  Let's talk about it.

I'm really hoping to get some decent interaction on this, so please read it thoughtfully, and be sure to invite some friends.  And don't worry–this is not an attempt to attack or demean anyone: I seriously just want some good conversation.
