This post is designed to encourage believers who have walked away from church and seekers who will not consider Christ because of ultraliteral interpretations of Gen. 1-11. Many of us Christians do not share this view, but accept science. 98% of scientists do not accept that view, either.
A survey shows that, in part, narrow creationism drives people, particularly the young, away from church, and another survey says it hurts Christian colleges. All of this because of a narrow interpretation of Scripture that forced them to choose between science and the Bible.
A full 98% (no. 2) of over 120,000 scientists connected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science believe that humans evolved over time—in evolution, in other words.
So, evolution, whether micro or macro, is not “in crisis.” It is not “bankrupt.” It is not in its “death throes.” It is not a “lie.” It will not go the way of dinosaurs.
