Steve Matheson on Evolution and Calvin College
Steve Matheson has written a guest post at Steve Martin's blog "An Evangelical Dialogue on Evolution" (now two days ago) on the controversy of evolution at Calvin College that is a fascinating read. Those familiar with Calvin know that it has been home to a number of remarkable scholars who have delved into these issues, notably Clarence Menninga, Davis Young (who's book Christianity and the age of the Earth is a must-read for any Christian), Howard van Till, and Terry Gray, who was notably tried for heresy by the Orthodox Presbyterian Church a number of years ago for espousing human/ape ancestry. The story is a microcosm of what many of us, as Christians, face in our pursuit of science.
