Faith vs. evolution - considering the debate

The Discovery Institute has launched a new website which debates the question: Can evolution and faith co-exist?

John West, a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, says he has heard the growing debate about whether God and Darwinian evolution can co-exist. "So we wanted to do a site -- FaithandEvolution.org -- that would allow people to explore for themselves just what the tensions are between evolution and faith, and the social implications," he notes.

The website allows users to engage in debate, see arguments from both sides, and draw their own conclusions, West points out. He contends that major media outlets are not covering the debate adequately enough and that many in the scientific community are even questioning of Darwinian theory.

"The Discovery Institute supports scholars who are raising critical questions about Darwin's theory and who support intelligent design," West adds. "And so we think that this voice needs to be heard in this conversation."
