R.J. Berry on Creation and Evolution

R.J. Berry, ‘Creation and Evolution Not Creation or Evolution’, Faraday Paper No. 12 (2007).

The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion makes available a number of helpful papers, including this one by R.J. (Sam) Berry. It prints out to four A4 pages, and is a model in concise expression of huge areas of thought.

Here’s the summary:

‘This paper argues that it is a misconception to oppose the concepts of creation and evolution. “Creation” is a theological term acknowledging the dependence of all that exists upon the authorship of the Creator. “Evolution” refers to our current understanding as to how God has brought biological diversity into being. Both accounts are required to do justice to what we as scientists observe.’
