Ted Davis on An Evangelical Dialogue on Evolution

Ted Davis has a guest post on Steve Martin's site on Evangelicals, Evolution and Academics. He notes the following:

Many evangelicals accept the big bang – indeed, quite a few evangelical leaders believe that aspects of the big bang theory strongly support belief in the divine creation of the universe. Many evangelicals also accept modern geology, with a 4.65 billion-year-old earth and the long history of living things before humans arrived on the planet. But evolution - understood here to mean the common descent of humans and other organisms - presents very serious problems for many, perhaps most, evangelicals.

This is true. I do not think that I have any friends who I go to church with that accept evolution. At the end of the piece he mentions a number of people who are practicing scientists and yet are Christians. They are far too few. There is a lot of work to be done.
