An Interesting Perspective
Last week I wrote a post about my struggle to explain these issues to my boys in a non-biased fashion. One of my fellow bloggers had this to say:
"I realize this is a difficult issue for your family, and I don't want to butt in when you haven't asked for suggestions. Let me just say that there are people - like me - who both believe in God and accept the reality of biological evolution, without experiencing any conflict."
Now, you may think that due to stance of religious matters, I would discount the views of Christians, but the contrary is true. I find the views of Christians extremely insightful, interesting, and valuable. This is especially true of Christians who are deeply convicted but do not subscribe to the practice of blind acceptance and do not need to because of their ability to reconcile two such profoundly conflicting and subjective concepts.
So I asked her if she would be willing to explain her point of view.
Today she posted this. It a very thoughtful, insightful, intelligent and incredibly well-reasoned response that is well worth reading. Thank you Veronica for taking the time to address my questions and my doubts so thoroughly and sensitively. I truly appreciate the time and effort you put into helping me and others understand your perspective on this very complex issue.
I'd like to hear from all of you, irrespective of your religious affiliation or lack thereof. If you have any thoughts on this subject, write a post about it, then email me with the URL. I will list the links here in this post.
I know this is a toughie. I struggle to put my own thoughts and feelings into words. But I hope at least a few of you will take me up on my proposition.
