that the Episcopal Church
really does not have a position on Evolution,
much in the same way
the National Science Foundation
does not have a position
on the Resurrection.
—The Rev. David Simmons
At the Ask The Priest Blog where I am a sometime contributor, David Simmons answers the frequently received question about The Eiscopal Church's position on Intelligent Design, evolution and the like including the text of a resolution from the most recent General Convention on the matter. In his thoughtful response, David says,
We simply cannot use the Bible as a science text. To do so is perilous to both science and to religion.David's whole response Religion and Science is thought provoking. In the archives are the religion column It doesn't have to be science vs. religion and the sermon Thoroughly Postmodern Paul.
