William Dembski engages the theistic evolution debate in a recent review. Here is a taste:
Throughout their book, Giberson and Collins overconfidently proclaim that Darwinian evolution is a slam-dunk. Thus one reads, "There has been no scientific discovery since Darwin--not one--which has suggested that evolution is not the best explanation for the origin of species" (21-22). No theory is that good. Every theory admits anomalies. Every theory faces disconfirming evidence. Repeatedly readers are informed that mountains of overwhelming evidence support Darwin's theory and that the authors are "unfamiliar with any premier scientists who reject evolution." And just so there's no doubt, in that same paragraph, they reiterate, "There are certainly a few scientists who reject evolution . . . But these are never premier scientists." Oh, you reject Darwinian evolution; you can't be a premier scientist.....(read the rest)
This is a critical debate because the question of origins is hugely important. For more on faith and evolution, click here.
