Quote of the day (refresh browser to select another):

Even the most devout and sincere believers in the Bible realize that it is, like most any other book, filled with metaphor, simile, allegory, and parable, which no intelligent person could be compelled to accept in a literal sense. ... The Lord has not taken from those who believe in his word the power of reason. He expects every man who takes his 'yoke' upon him to have common sense enough to accept a figure of speech in its proper setting, and to understand that the holy scriptures are replete with allegorical stories, faith-building parables, and artistic speech. ... Where is there a writing intended to be taken in all its parts literally? Such a writing would be insipid and hence lack natural appeal. To expect a believer in the Bible to strike an attitude of this kind and believe all that is written to be a literal rendition is a stupid thought. No person with the natural use of his faculties looks upon the Bible in such a light. -- Joseph Fielding Smith, Jr. (mid-20thC LDS President), Doctrines of Salvation, Bookcraft, Salt Lake City, UT, vol. 3, 1956, pg. 188.

The objective of this website is to collect high-quality, authoritative information on topics in the arena of science and religion, and to present this information in a rigorous, intellectually honest, well-documented and non-partisan manner. Topics include evolution, creationism, intelligent design, physics, cosmology, philosophy, theology, biblical scholarship and social issues, organized into more than 80 separate articles (not including an additional 100+ articles in the blog). These articles are updated periodically as new research results and scholarship become available. Detailed references are given in all cases, with web links where available, and all references are listed in an extensive bibliography.

The material on this site is targeted to a broad spectrum of scientific, religious and social movements. However, no advertisements or solicitations to support any organization (scientific, academic or religious) are allowed.
