I am pooped driving this town trying to understand antievolutionism in Dallas.
It’s all over the churches because of a local seminary providing their pastors and two apologetics organizations hosting conferences, well, actually three.
But I really hoped groups like Intervarsity would be different on campus.
Nope. They outsource issues related to science and faith to one of the apologetics groups.
Everybody in this town who is evangelical and in ministry in church or on campus is antievolutionist.
I have to radically accept that. Baylor is my final refuge as an EC. My only refuge.
I heard a question from a student named Lucy at an apologetics thing run by an antievolutionist church here.
A question about science and faith and her nonbelieving professor.
I don’t want Lucy to be shaken by evolutionary ideas, but the ministers around me are fighting to protect her from them.
And those ministers regularly fly in national names to attack the university biology departments.
Lucy is my focus. But she is being influenced by many people.
What should I do as just one person trained in the history of the controversy?
My first idea is to survey the army of antievolutionist ministers.
