Evolution -- Sightings (Martin Marty)
Evolution is a dirty word in some Christian circles. I made my peace with evolution a long time ago, as you can see by my book that goes by the title Worshiping with Charles Darwin, (Energion, 2013). But the question of how religion and science relate has yet to be fully answered. There are, of course, as Martin Marty points out, fundamentalisms of religion and science that will not give room for other's existence, but that need not be us. In this essay, Marty reflects on the recent discovery of the sounds made by gravitational waves. It leads him to a reflection on a speech given by a Dominican priest and scientist years ago that speaks to the messiness of our realities. I invite you to read and reflect on the relationship of faith and science.
