Francis S. Collins, Obama’s pick to head the National Institutes of Health, published a piece in the recent issue of Sojourners Magazine about science and faith. An excerpt:
I regularly get e-mails from young people in crisis: Having been raised to believe that the earth is 6,000 years old, they encounter overwhelming evidence to the contrary in a university class, and their world starts to come apart. What a terrible and unnecessary tragedy!
The former director of the Human Genome Project, Collins recently launched the BioLogos Foundation, which “promotes the search for truth in both the natural and spiritual realms seeking harmony between these different perspectives.”
CT also has a Q&A with Collins on evolution and faith.
