So where is this heading? What kind of Christians accept evolution, and how does it affect their beliefs? Do they all deny Adam, original sin, the doctrine of inerrancy, divine intervention?

This 150-year-old debate over evolution can flare up in all kinds of places. Sometimes the issue gets wrapped into a court case, a school board election, and sometimes things play out in the media.

It seems that some prefer avoiding the science and arguing that Darwin led to the Holocaust, racism, and even school shootings. These are bogus claims to be […]
