Evolution is back! And as in years gone by, it has surfaced in Texas, the state with a governor and many denizens who offer proof that not everyone evolves.
Ecology emerged out of Greek thought. But like the rest of Greek science, ecological ideas from Aristotle and other Greek natural philosophers went th...
I know that I and others have been given near death experiences so we can share our experience and make people understand that death is not to be feared and that Heaven is real.
The first gag rule didn't make the outrage over slavery go away, nor did the global gag rule prevent women from going through dangerous pregnancies, nor will the North Carolina legislature's scientific wisdom keep the water from rising.
Our task is to find new words, new vessels for that old wine of deep spiritual awareness, words that can awaken minds formed in our scientific age and help us to transform our ways of living while there is still time.

You see, women (along with short-finned and killer whales) are among the small handful of species unable to reproduce until the end of life.

So what will a fully mature Internet look like? How will it change the structure of our world? What will the Internet be in 2050?
I can say with integrity, my faith is richer for my belief in evolution, not worse. So I'm asking, Christians, can we quit fighting this battle? Can we reevaluate what truly deserves protest and lobbying dollars?

Because the human brain has become so large and sophisticated in terms of the social computations it supports, it takes a very long time for it to develop fully.
Evolutionary theory certainly can illuminate why fathers don't all invest equally. And an intriguing study, published this month, supports the idea of a biological continuum between high and low-investing fathers.
It appears that in Massachusetts, educational reform does not mean vouchers for private schools, closing poorly performing schools, eliminating tenure for teachers, merit pay, and replacing public schools with privately operated charters.
