Faith and Science

Francis Collins, the former head of the Human Genome Project, has launched a new website to discuss the matters of faith and science. The site is called "BioLogos" and comes from "biological" and "logos," the Greek term for "word," which is often used to describe the Word of God. According to their website, the BioLogos Foundation "believes that faith and science both lead to truth about God and creation."

The Center for Science and Culture also launched a site discussing faith and science. The site is called "Faith and Evolution" and their purpose, as explained on the website, is as follows:

"According to noted biologist Richard Dawkins, Darwinian evolution makes it possible to become an intellectually fulfilled atheist. According to Francis Collins, former head of the Human Genome Project, evolution is perfectly compatible with his Christian faith. Who is right? And why does it matter? This website is designed to help you find out. Here you will find articles, debates, video and audio, discussion questions, and other free resources as you explore the issues surrounding faith and evolution."
