Re: Why are Creationists so afraid of Evolution?

On the subject of Evangelical Christianity and evolution, is anyone else here familiar with BioLogos.com? It's, in their words, "a community of evangelical Christians committed to exploring and celebrating the compatibility of evolutionary creation and biblical faith, guided by the truth that “all things hold together in Christ.” [Col 1:17]"

They don't consider themselves to be ID or Creationists, in the typical meaning of that term. They're also helpful in pointing to Christians that have historically been open to a non-literal interpretation of the Genesis accounts (Origen, Augustine, Aquinas) or accepting of evolution (B. B. Warfield, who, ironically, is considered one of the spearheads of the inerrancy of the Bible movement).

Anyways, I find it encouraging to see thoughtful work by (evangelical) Christians of both scientific and theological professions attempting real, intelligent dialogue in this area.
