RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Essay talk:Evolution in Genesis

From RationalWiki

Hmmm - while I think that you overstate the case a bit, and there's some stuff that I raised an eyebrow at, I agree with you that Genesis contains a few ideas that could represent an inkling of the idea of evoluon - the authors of Genesis do seem to have the idea of complexity developing out of simplicity, even if they simply ascribe it to God. Irenaeus does the same thing (I think he's actually among the first to use the word 'evolution' - in Latin of course - in such a way), Augustine winks at it, and Teilhard de Chardin is Teilhard de Chardin. --䷉䷻䷶䷈䷰䷒䷰䷈䷶䷈䷡䷶䷀䷵䷥
