On Science and Religion

Thanks to Bob Allen at Ethics Daily for calling attention to Sjoerd Bonting's new book "Creation and Double Chaos: Science and Theology in Discussion."

We certainly need more dialogue between scientists and theologians on how to bridge the gap between science and religion. Bonting appears to be a scientist/theologian with an intellect and spirit similar to that of Eric Rust.

Before the recent fundamentalist ossification of theological inquiry and discussion, Baptists used to encourage efforts like Bonting's to spark theological dialogue with scientists. Now they are just repackaging stale apologetics and trying to cram it down the throats of scientists by force of law.
