Evolution and a Divine Creator Are Compatible

A story on the National Geographic website begins with this quote:

“Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.” —Albert Einstein

I love it because A) it’s funny, and B) it perfectly elucidates my view on why Christianity and evolution can and should be compatible. The Nat Geo story details how many scientists believe in God and how they understand that God could have driven evolution in His process of creating us.

Here’s another quote from the story:

“Scientists may be just as likely to believe in God as other people, according to surveys. Some of history’s greatest scientific minds, including Albert Einstein, were convinced there is intelligent life behind the universe. Today many scientists say there is no conflict between their faith and their work.”

Amen.
