My Take: Jesus would believe in evolution and so should you
The most compelling evidence for evolution comes from the study of genes.

My Take: Jesus would believe in evolution and so should you

Editor's Note: Karl W. Giberson, Ph.D., is vice president of The BioLogos Foundation and is the author or coauthor of seven books, including The Language of Science and Faith.

By Karl W. Giberson, Special to CNN

Jesus once famously said, “I am the Truth.”

Christianity at its best embodies this provocative idea and has long been committed to preserving, expanding and sharing truth. Most of the great universities of the world were founded by Christians committed to the truth—in all its forms—and to training new generations to carry it forward.

When science began in the 17th century, Christians eagerly applied the new knowledge to alleviate suffering and improve living conditions.

But when it comes to the truth of evolution, many Christians feel compelled to look the other way. They hold on to a particular interpretation of an ancient story in Genesis that they have fashioned into a modern account of origins - a story that began as an oral tradition for a wandering tribe of Jews thousands of years ago.

This is the view on display in a $27 million dollar Creation Museum in Kentucky. It inspired the Institute for Creation Research, which purports to offer scientific support for creationism.

And it’s hardly a fringe view. A 2010 Gallup poll indicated that 4 in 10 Americans think that “God created human beings pretty much in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years or so.” (http://www.gallup.com/poll/145286/four-americans-believe-strict-creationism.aspx)

While Genesis contains wonderful insights into the relationship between God and the creation, it simply does not contain scientific ideas about the origin of the universe, the age of the earth or the development of life.

For more than two centuries, careful scientific research, much of it done by Christians, has demonstrated clearly that the earth is billions years old, not mere thousands, as many creationists argue. We now know that the human race began millions of years ago in Africa - not thousands of years ago in the Middle East, as the story in Genesis suggests.

And all life forms are related to each other though evolution. These are important truths that science has discovered through careful research. They are not “opinions” that can be set aside if you don’t like them.

Anyone who values truth must take these ideas seriously, for they have been established as true beyond any reasonable doubt.

There is much evidence for evolution. The most compelling comes from the study of genes, especially now that the Human Genome Project has been completed and the genomes of many other species being constantly mapped.

In particular, humans share an unfortunate “broken gene” with many other primates, including chimpanzees, orangutans, and macaques. This gene, which works fine in most mammals, enables the production of Vitamin C. Species with broken versions of the gene can’t make Vitamin C and must get it from foods like oranges and lemons.

Thousands of hapless sailors died painful deaths scurvy during the age of exploration because their “Vitamin C” gene was broken.

How can different species have identical broken genes? The only reasonable explanation is that they inherited it from a common ancestor.

Not surprisingly, evolution since the time of Darwin has claimed that humans, orangutans, chimpanzees, and macaques evolved recently from a common ancestor. The new evidence from genetics corroborates this.

Such evidence proves common ancestry with a level of certainty comparable to the evidence that the earth goes around the sun.

This is but one of many, many evidences that support the truth of evolution - that make it a “sacred fact” that Christians must embrace in the name of truth. And they should embrace this truth with enthusiasm, for this is the world that God created.

Christians must come to welcome - rather than fear - the ideas of evolution. Truths about Nature are sacred, for they speak of our Creator. Such truths constitute “God’s second book” for Christians to read alongside the Bible.

In the 17th century, Galileo used the metaphor of the “two books” to help Christians of his generation understand the sacred truth that the earth moves about the sun. “The Bible,” he liked to say, “tells us how to go to heaven, not how the heavens ago.”

To understand how the heavens go we must read the book of Nature, not the Bible.

The Book of nature reveals the truth that God created the world through gradual processes over billions of years, rather than over the course of six days, as many creationists believe.

Evolution does not contradict the Bible unless you force an unreasonable interpretation on that ancient book.

To suppose, as the so-called young earth creationists do, that God dictated modern scientific ideas to ancient and uncomprehending scribes is to distort the biblical message beyond recognition. Modern science was not in the worldview of the biblical authors and it is not in the Bible.

Science is not a sinister enterprise aimed at destroying faith. It’s an honest exploration of the wonderful world that God created.

We are often asked to think about what Jesus would do, if he lived among us today. Who would Jesus vote for? What car would he drive?

To these questions we should add “What would Jesus believe about origins?”

And the answer? Jesus would believe evolution, of course. He cares for the Truth.

    God just talked to me a minute ago. Me and him talk at least once a day on average. He told me to tell everyone to be good and don't make him mad or he will not wait until judgement day, he will come get you in your dreams tonight. So be good to everyone, even yourself. Don't worry, be happy. The most important thing though is to think positively. If you tell yourself life is hell, then it is. If you tell yourself that today is the first day of the rest of your life and you only have one life to live and you may as well think happy stuff so that you will fool yourself into thinking that we are not all living in the twilight zone someone in the milky way galaxy you'll be a lot better off. It's your choice and it's all what you tell yourself, as long as you don't tell yourself crazy stuff most of the time...

    the Evolution is a lie for the unfaithful. it is only transparent to those that see the LIGHT. only the saved from jesus can see that it is a hoax to stray you from the TRUTH.
    apparently the other 6 in 10 americans will rot in hell. oh how i wish there will be mercy for their souls.

    please. just read the bible and trust in it fully. OUR SAVIOR DOES NOT LIE.

    EINSTEIN THE SMARTEST MAN EVER SAID GOD DOES NOT PLAY DICE. THE EVOLUTION IS PLAYING DICE. HOW CAN PEOPLE THINK THEY'RE ABOVE BOTH THE LORD AND SOMEONE WHO WAS SO MUCH HIGHER IN INTELLIGENCE THAN THE REST OF US??!?!

    it saddens me to see people straying away from truth that was written to save them. instead they eat up all this "scientific proof" garbage.

    GOD IS THE ONLY PROOF YOU NEED. LORD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOULS. HIS ETERNAL LOVE WILL GUIDE YOU IF YOU LET HIM. ELSE, BURN IN HELL.

    There are dozens if not hundreds of religions. Everyone of them "knows" that they are right and everyone else is wrong based off no evidence whatsoever, but rather faith. People from one faith are more than happy to assume the "sacred texts" of someone else's faith was written by man, but for some reason -their- sacred texts are the divine word of whatever God they believe in. All you have to do to believe in evolution is look at religion itself. All of today's religions EVOLVED from earlier versions. Christianity and Islam both evolved directly from Judaism, and neither one is the same as it was when they were formed. They are ever changing – evolving. And Judaism has evolved over a much longer period, but even it sprung from more primitive worship alongside religions that died, like the worship of Baal. Unfortunately most professed "religious" people have no clue where their religions came from. They simply spout off whatever they are told to. Sad.

      in 1:3). Yes, he expected Jesus and his agelns to sweep down from heaven to slaughter the ungodly, yes he expected the roman empire (Babylon) to be swept away soon, and yes he expected a new shining Jerusalem and a new creation. Revelation is quite a precious book for us who study early christianity. Here we have a christian prophet (certainly not the only one at the time) in full swing believing with a sureness bordering on hysteria that he is receving revelations from his risen lord in heaven through an angel. I also think that Revelation gives us a good insight into the way "prophecies" like the little Apocalypse in gospel of Mark (chapter) 13 found their way into the new testament. I actually donb4t think a single word in the little apocalypse in Mark goes back to the historical Jesus. Itb4s all coming from christian prophets like the one writing Revelation sharing their powers of "seeing" the plan of God with their christian communities. That said I have a question that is worth asking; if Jesus and his followers were as ignorant about the past (genesis)as they appear to have been why should we expect them to be any more knowing about the future?

    It should also be pointed out that evolution is a fact. There is the theory of evolution, which exists to explain the fact of evolution, just like there is a theory of gravity which exists to explain the fact of gravity. Evolution as a fact was known for generations before Darwin, we just didn't know exactly how it happened. To deny evolution is tantamount to denying a mountain of evidence right in front of your eyes. The theory of how evolution happens is basically superfluous to this discussion, as the fact of evolution is what matters.

  11. The Saint

    if the Bible is really the Word of God (as its writers allege and as we believe) then evolution and its geological age-system must be completely false. Since the Bible cannot be reinterpreted to correlate with evolution, Christians must diligently proceed to correlate the facts of science so with the Bible.

    April 10, 2011 at 12:51 pm |
    • TampaMan

      I agree with you, Saint. However, Christian faith is not based upon the theories of man as atheism is. Christianity is based upon the personal revelation of God in the person of Jesus Christ. As you say, Christians should defend their position on evolution with more energy, but since it isn't the basis of our faith we rarely feel the need to do so.

      Unfortunate. The dialogue would be much more entertaining if there were more participation.

    "Most people in the world are reluctant to form their own opinions on the basis of a personal study of anything, and they usually accept the views of those whose opinions they value. This mental laziness is an unfortunate characteristic of men and women in the United States too. The average extremist, who decides to sacrifice his life in order to kill someone else, has the same malady afflicting his psyche. He is unable to indulge in detailed deductive thinking, and if someone he respects tells him that God wants him to kill somebody, he (the extremist) believes it to be true. He seems incapable of considering the possibility that the man he respects might be totally wrong."

    Well it's typical, anything to do with science and the Chistians come out of the woodwork to deny everything and whine about how science has corrupted the world through lies and deceit.

    How about carry on a logical debate here instead of whining about it. Science is about proven fact. Evolution can happen over a period of 10 day to thousands and millions of years. And did we come from a single organism? No, but we came from the basis of the same chemical makeup and that organism adapted to it's environment. This is known and proven fact by the discovery of deep under water vent in the floor of the oceans. All unique specimens. Proven fact.

    So please before you sit and whine about how how your beliefs are being attacked, which they are not, step back , take a breath, and try for once to see things beyond a book that you take for hard fact and believe without question.

    "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    The same was in the beginning with God.
    All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that hath been made."
    John 1:1-3

    According to the first chapter of the gospel of John, Jesus IS the creator. Exactly how His work was accomplished is not explained.

    "Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge which is power; religion gives man wisdom which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values.

    The two are not rivals. They are complementary.

    Science keeps religion from sinking into the valley of crippling irrationalism and paralyzing obscurantism. Religion prevents science from falling into the marsh of obsolete materialism and moral nihilism."

They can't disprove dinosaurs so they found a way to include them with their version of "history". Evolution happened and the Earth is billions of years old...... deal with it.

      Yours is a view that I've never been able to understand. I suspect that you are a good person at heart but you have such vicious views of the world and of your God. You believe in and worship the concept of God that is so vengeful and vicious that He would send people that don't believe a certain doctrine to Hell. That's the only criteria you have for such harsh punishment? Not being a murderer, rapist, thief or any other truly bad behavior.

      Imagine a good and moral person that doesn't believe in what you do. They lived a good life and helped out their fellow man. What waits for them in your view is Hell because they didn't believe in a book written thousands of years ago? Really? That's a good thing?

      Hey Joe, Everything we "know" about Jesus was written at least 60 years after he died, by people who did not know him personally. The oldest Gospel is that of Mark, which was written some 60 years after Jesus' death, and was aruguably NOT written by the Apostle Mark. We have NOTHING that records the actual words of Christ. Get over your self-righteousness. The Bible was written by MEN, who wrote with their own biases to promote their own viewpoint. It is a book of faith (ie:OPINION) NOT fact. It is the history of a group of semi-nomadic Semites, written down after many centuries of oral tradition. And if YOU won't be in Hell with all your flowery exposition about Jesus and the literal Bible, I won't mind being there one bit. Drinking Jack Daniels and surfing on the Lake of Fire listening to jazz...you know, the Devil's music.

      Ed you forgot to mention that many of the stories were taken from other religions to make up the stories in the bible. There were religions before the bible that believed in a heaven and souls. Even the story of Jesus was taken from the Persian sun God. Religion is all about instilling fear and control over weak minded people.
