That deism question from my friend mark (who believes EC is deism) creates a robust debate for which I am very thankful, and I will text him today about the nationwide discourse I have witnessed.
BioLogos at its best. Thank you.
I cannot begin to explain the networks ID overshadows here in the buckle of world creationism in Dallas.
Of course, creation science is here too, but it has almost zero impact among university student ministries.
As far ID, there is immense impact. Broad and deep. Student leaders lost as to what to say running toward the Discovery Institute network of science and theology and philosophy people all united.
I heard the polemics. The broadsides against any accommodation for what is taught in the university biology departments. And against the scientific consensus.
I spend a lot of time looking at small and invisible people watching these tensions on campus, affected by the national fracas.
The students that is. The carriers of the Gospel baton after we all are dead.
All I can think of given my limits is to invite local ID people including student leaders to lunch and talk about Darwin, Paley, and the Discovery Institute network and agenda.
Plus our common cause, the great commission especially among students and professors.
But we also need to be good neighbors to each other. Locally.
Think global, act local.
If you have anything to add to that strategy let me know. I am ready to act for the sake of the small and invisible leaders and those they socialize with locally.
