Evolution by Design: Exploring an Evolution-Compatible Natural Theology


The multifaceted evidence for common descent, a single tapestry of life, has convinced most biologists since Darwin. This evidence has become stronger in the genomics era. This talk will explore what can be said about design arguments in light of the genomic evidence and purported counter-examples, and propose some ways forward for Christian scientists and apologists. In particular, I suggest a framework of ‘fine-tuning’ as helpful for both considering evolutionary theory from within a Christian worldview and introducing people to the coherence of this worldview.
