Salvo Magazine Publishes Issue Supplement on Science and Faith

CHICAGO, IL, (CHRISTIAN NEWS SERVICE) — Salvo magazine has published a supplement to its fall 2013 issue that’s devoted exclusively to topics surrounding science and faith. The 80-page supplement features contributions from prominent academics in such fields as the philosophy of science, biology, zoology, physics, earth sciences and astronomy, as well as leading Christian apologists from such organizations as Stand to Reason, Reasons to Believe and the Evangelical Philosophical Society. The special issue examines the potentialities and limitations of both science and faith and challenges the increasingly widespread notion that the two spheres of knowledge offer conflicting information about the origins and development of life. Among the many issues it addresses are scientism, evolution, intelligent design, the peer-review process, miracles, Adam and Eve, natural and moral evil and consciousness. “Ideally, this supplement will be used by college students and other young adults as a handbook to help guide them through the various debates, tensions and conflicts surrounding the so-called faith/science divide,” Salvo senior editor Bobby Maddex said. “The idea here was to anticipate and then offer honest answers to the types of science- and faith-related questions that await our young people in school, at the workplace and in pop culture.” A publication of The Fellowship of St. James (http://www.fsj.org), Salvo is dedicated to debunking the cultural myths that have undercut human dignity, all but destroyed the notions of virtue and morality, and slowly eroded our appetite for transcendence. The quarterly magazine is in its seventh year of publication and regularly features articles that navigate the intersection of science and religion. Contributors to the magazine’s special supplement include Frank Tipler, professor of mathematics and physics at Tulane University; Austin Hughes, distinguished professor of biological sciences at the University of South Carolina; Stephen Meyer, founder and director of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture; Greg Koukl, founder and director of Stand to Reason; and William Dembski, head of the Institute of Scientific Apologetics at Southern Evangelical Seminary. Sample articles — Does Science Deserve Its Pedestal?, Can Science Explain Origins?, and Is There a Conflict Between Science & Faith Over the Origin of Life? — are available online.
