My blog

Hi everyone, this is my first attempt at blogging, please be patient with me. I have always been passionately interested in science and always been a committed Christian who believes in the creative power of God, and I honestly believe that the two are not mutually exclusive. I would like to use this blog to explore this relationship.

missing monkey-humans

There's a lot of confusion about evolution because we are unable to see things happening in our short life-times.  As children we have very short attention spans; this is why entertainment is fed to us in bite-sized cartoon form rather than movies or, even better, books.  Sometimes as adults this feature of our child-hood carries over in part because we cannot or will not see the whole picture.  We think that the description of creation as described in the book of Genesis (six days and all that) is exactly how it all happened, and that six thousand years ago.  But we should really look at the evidence.  It isn't all black-and-white.  Elsewhere in this blog are excerpts from a series called "Discovering Religion"; this is an excellent series which seeks to help explain about evolution and the need to be more open-minded when looking at evidence;  more from the same series are to be posted.
