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.

    Personally I view genesis (and much of the bible) as a pre-scientific aettmpt to understand the world.As I mentioned in the post, to equate the story to the big bang or evolution either abuses the story to the point that not one single word has any meaning, or gets the science completely wrong.For instance the story has the earth created and populated with plant life before the sun, moon, and stars come into existence. And it has birds living before land animals.This is not an issue of textual interpretation, or it being an allegory, these are just flat out wrong.I agree that to take the story literally today, which mankind's understanding of science, would at best be a case of willful ignorance. But it also seems that to take the stories as an allegory abuses the science, while perhaps not quite as much still well past the point of reasonableness.I think if the story is taken as an early aettmpt to understand the world, it makes tremendous sense. If it is taken as true , it strains any conceivable logic.

    Catalin, you are probably right, but since Xbox360 is a DX9 dcevie, waiting for DX10 in XNA would be not much of solution for me :/But, what if we compute a line that stretches across a polygon that is supposed to cast shadow. This line would connect the two most outer points of that polygon, the ones that are on the edges of your shadow. Then we could use that line for calculating shadow using Manders method. Off course such a shadow would partially cover the shadow casting object itself, but then we could draw that object on top of the shadow layer or maybe use a pixel shader to remove parts of a shadow that intersect with the shadow casting object itself.Again this is only a rough idea, based on my common sense logic and not a deep knowledge of the XNA and shaders. The knowledge which i unfortunately don't posses (yet)

    Yes, I'm aware of Manders' technique. I utohgh hard about doing all those computations on the GPU myself, but there is a big difference between our samples.He only has lines for which to draw shadows, while I have polygons with arbitrary number of edges. For a line, no matter of the light's position relative to it, the shadow always has the same shape. This is not so for a polygon, and depends both on the shape of the polygon and on the position of the light. One way to do this would be to draw the shadow volumes for each edge of the polygon, in the same way as Manders draws shadows for his lines, but depending on the level of detail of that polygon, this could result in a great number of Draw calls (order of tens), as opposed to a single Draw call for the whole object's shadow, as it happens now. These add up, and may actually hurt performance more than benefit it.This is one area where DirectX10 geometry shaders would come in handy, as they could be used to generate the shadow's geometry on the GPU, for any convex shape imaginable. But since XNA is DX9 only, for now I'll have to stick to doing all this on the CPU.One other idea would be to move these computations on another thread, and use multi-threading, but this is dangerous territory as well.

    The only evolution possible in nature is micro-evolution (variations within a biological kind such as varieties of dogs, cats, horses, cows, etc.), but not macro-evolution (variations across biological kinds such as from worm to human).

    There is no “Junk DNA.” What we thought was junk in DNA (the “non-gene” sequences) is very useful and even essential in regulating gene expression (how, where, and, when genes are expressed). This has been substantiated by recent research reported in scientific journals such as Nature and RNA.

    Genetic and biological similarities are much better explained due to a common Designer who designed similar functions for similar purposes than common ancestry via chance mutations.

    I invite all to read my Internet article “War Among Evolutionists!” published in the English edition of Russia’s Pravda.

      Take a look at something called the Pentadactyl limb. It will blow your tiny mind. Here's a link

      Don't come onto the internet and make broad and retarded statements like the ones above when it is clear you don't have any idea what the hell you are talking about. All you do is make religious people seem more stupid and ignorant, which by the way is often a feat in itself. I look forward to your reply but please cite any claims to a credible source. (That does NOT include the Bible.)

    The author of this article claims that God made this world, and that it evolved into what it is today. He also says that that there is so much evidence for evolution that it is, without a doubt, the truth and it's not simply an opinion... and his biggest argument is that Christians believe in truth since Jesus claimed to be the truth, thus they must believe in evolution because it's, without a doubt, the truth.

    My question to the author is: What truth are you talking about? The truth that Christians seek after is the truth that comes from the BIBLE; not mere human research, reasoning, and testing. The Bible (the book that Christians get their beliefs from) even says in 1 corinthians "Since God, in his wisdom, saw that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe." It also says "Woe to those that are wise in their own sight and clever in their own eyes". So, the wisdom that we have from science and other things may not be BAD; however, what it's saying is that man's science, knowledge, and reasoning cannot find and describe the all-powerful, mysterious God. The truth that Christians seek after is not the truth that WE prove or that WE discover, but the truth that GOD provides through His Word.

    Also, Genesis was very clear when it said that God made woman out of man's rib... not from other organisms. Also, the Bible clearly distinguishes man and female from ANY other creature. It says in Genesis 1 that man was created to rule over all the other creation... thus, according to the truth of the Bible, man did NOT come from any other organism. Believing in the God of the Bible and evolution is very, very contradicting; it's impossible.

    • Toby

      Your post stating that "the Bible clearly distinguishes man and female from ANY other creature" is interesting. It seems however that there is a flaw with your statement. Due mainly as "Scientists have sequenced the genome of the chimpanzee and found that humans are 96 percent similar to the great ape species." (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/08/0831_050831_chimp_genes.html)
      The idea that your God created man in an image of himself (maybe God evolved?!) lends the idea that his imagination wasn't too great, if he had to use a strikingly similar genetic code to create other, lesser animals.
      To reply to your comment regarding the contradiction between believing in the bible and believing in evolution, I think you'll find yourself guilty of hypocracy. You sit there at your computer, probably using a lithium ion battery and a wi-fi connection. These things did not evolve, but they work on the basis of hypotheses (about electrons, protons and energy waves) which were tested and developed into theories. This same scientific rigor has been applied to evolution, yet you would rather take a literal interpretation of what at best is an old book. By all means take the bible metaphorically to derive 'moral' stories if you do insist on believing in a God (although I think that is still pushing it frankly), but don't try and pretend you can present a credible alternative in they eyes of science – which you so heavily rely on for everything else in your life.

      Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene is an iinerestntg hypothesis to begin with but as long as the origin of life has not been understood with scientific clarity and as long as science ignores the experiential concept of consciousness, we shall not be making a real progress toward a consummate understanding of evolution though evolutionary biology has been an iinerestntg approximate function of reality.

    EXISTENCE OF ANYTHING WHETHER LIVING THINGS OR NON LIVING THINGS FROM THE STORY OF EVOLUTION OR CREATION REQUIRES AT LEAST A FORCE TO BRING ABOUT THIS EFFECT(EVOLUTION OR CREATION EFFECT)AND ACCORDING TO SCIENCE A FORCE MUST HAVE A SOURCE.

    "As Q said, your comment shows an incredible amount of ignorance about science in general and evolution, in particular. First of all, read and study about any of the things you tried to assert, rather than parrot the usual creationists' lame arguments. Look up what a theory actually is. It is not at all what you have obviously been told. People like you are the ones who will put this world back in the dark ages with your idiotic 'beliefs.'

    The only thing disturbing is the evangelical zeal that the above shows for Darwin and evolution without even stating any experiment or study which proves what he accepts is true and just attacks and insults those that disagree with him/her.

    Case in point, shared genes or remnants of genes found in humans that are also found in birds or reptiles. Darwinist purists say this is proof of Godless evolution, where a scientist that allows for Intelligent Design would say there is only a finite number of genes and genetic combinations that make up life so some force that began and guided the creation of the universe and life forms would use many of these genes and combinations of genes to bring about the different forms of life in nature.
    Evolution purists say that some outside guidance is not provable, whereas those that allow for an intelligence guiding the formation of life say the mathematical probabilities that evolution left to total random chance, requiring every biological happening to occur with just the right sequence of proteins and genes to form each step in the evolution process, makes it mathematically impossible to happen on it's own. Yet evolution purists say "it did" by merely explaining so much time was allowed for it to happen. It is this that doubters of unguided evolution draw on the notion that evolution of blind chance is not enough of an explanation.

    I've read a lot of the posts on here. It is sad because all we are doing is arguing with each other. Personally, I believe Intelligent Design. This world is far too complex to have just evolved. HOWEVER (before anyone starts chewing me out) I don't think we should waste our time on here proving anything to each other. I am not going to sit on here and argue back and forth with anyone about what I believe. People should believe in what they believe in without anyone trying to swad them either way. People shouldn't try and prove their beliefs. Just believe in it and leave it at that. Yes, I believe that people should share their beliefs, but when we start degrading people because they believe in macro- or microevolution or creation, it doesn't get us anywhere. It takes a lot of faith to believe in evolution, but it also takes a lot of faith to believe in a Creator. We don't have SOLID proof of either, unfortuantely. People can say what they may, but if we keep arguing about it then that means that there isn't proof. We don't argue the color of the sky or the spherical shape of the Earth because we have solid proof of both these things. We would call people crazy if they still believed the world was flat or that the sky was green. Sadly, we call people crazy for believing in evolution or for believing in creation because we have some misplaced preconceived notions that someone HAS to be right. Unless we can make time travel happy, we will not know what happened 6000 years ago or billions of years ago (depending on where you stand) before humanity came along. I honestly think that science and God can coexist – in that God gave us humans the knowledge to try and figure out our universe. If we didn't strive to find out more about the place we live, we'd still be privy to the world is flat theory.

    In all honesty, where we came from and how it happened isn't as important as trying to preserve this place we call home. The universe is an astounding place and there are many more mysteries to be discovered, but I think for right now mankind needs to put our differences aside and figure out how to keep our home afloat. We've only got one world that is capable of sustaining life and we need to take care of it 🙂

      I believe in God, I believed in Santa Clause, I actually believe in creationism.....HOWEVER, science is not believe. We don't believe in evolution. We have used the scientific method to create hypothesis based on observations, rigourously tested these hypothesis and by doing so have come up with Laws that govern the mechanisms of the Universe and evolution....Based on all of these rigourous and robust practices we come up with Theories to explain Gods world and Universe....In the science world the testable hypothesis, that a complex system can only be created rather than happen spontaneously, is begining and not much data supports that....There is 150 years of data that supports evolution....

      This article is about Jesus being a man who could see the Truth of science and evolution. As a Christian, I believe the same thing. This is where I differ with most creationist! We just have different beliefs but not different science....You can't impose your religious beliefs on science...it is lazy.

    My objection to the supposed scientific method people is that they do not actually use the scientific method. They see an area with no starts and then leap to a "theory" about black holes and offer it as fact. Darwin had a theory (now they offer that as fact). IN FACT hey have not found the origin or life and there is no instance of something being a half-this/half-that in transition. They have not found life spontaneously happening (or even RNA/DNA) and yet they express their notion as fact. Well it is all just a notion. They also say nuclear power cannot fail (like Chernobyl) .. like if a Tsunami hit after an earthquake. Oh they have it all factored in and it CANNOT happen. (but it did). There are some declaring there is life "out there" (but there is no evidence). It's all just theory and notion and maybe .. well actually maybe is no better than anyone else's guess. The fact is THEY DO NOT KNOW (about a lot of things)

      I did not mean by Islamists estermixts such as Al Qaeda and the like. Most Islamists reject them and certainly are not terrorists. What they have in common with fundamentalist Christians is a shared antipathy to science when it comes into conflict with their religious belief. This happens not just with evolution versus creationism or as the new jargon has it intelligent design but with other issues as well. Both Islamists and fundamentalist Christians think of being gay as a sin and not simply a condition common to some persons in all societies and most likely incapable of being altered. While Islamists may go further than fundamentalist Christians in the subjection of women both surely consider the male dominant or have things changed? What I had to say about science skills is based upon a recent study, it is not just an opinion of mine. Certainly the US is much freer than Islamic states such as Saudi Arabia or Iran or Afghanistan in many ways but there are certain similarities between the way in which religion influences issues in the US such as the matter under discussion. I still stand amazed that evolution is still such a contentious issue versus religious belief. This seems to be out of sync with what is common in most developed capitalist societies elsewhere such as in most countries in Europe. Anyway I am mostly immune to insults . Actually I thought nomennovum was rather mild. Mostly he insulted Islamists but I do not know why he thinks where I come from we pay no attention to grammar and syntax! Where does he think I come from?

      but why would Jesus care anything about evolution any way ..he,s the creator of it all .. evo is just some poor guys
      misunderstanding ..about the world we live in ...an Jesus is still alive an on the throne...saving people from there
      sins an help them make it to heaven ...... so what hope is there in this evolution were is the joy the love an mercy..
      for you when your wrong ..or need help ..look around Jesus is still helping people get off the wrong road to
      no wear an putting then on of blessing ..an giving them a real purpose in life..being a partner with the creator of
      universe..spreading the word .that Jesus lives an loves us ..an wants to help us live better lives .then join him an his father in heaven ..when our time here is done ...not dying .or going into the great darkness ..but going home to a father that
      never will live us or for sake us ..who,s door is never locked an who,s arms are ever open an welcoming us
      home..who believe home ...don,t you want to be one of the number..that has a home to go to when this life is over
      you should ask Jesus to help you.. ..Jesus is offering you everything.. happiness .. joy .. an to never die
      but you have to talk to him you have to tell him you believe ..that he died an rose again..an is alive now to save all
      who come to him ..you have to tell him your sorry for sin an ask him to for give you..if you do
      he won,t let you down ..he is not a man that he should lie...
