Leading Scientists and Theologians

Evolution may simply be a fact…yet it is in need of continuous interpretation. …In my opinion the sure sign of the right road is a limitless prospect of deeper knowledge: what was once baffling is now clear, what seemed absurdly important is now simply childish, yet still the journey is unfinished

Simon Conway Morris, Life's Solution, Cambridge, 2003

I am one of a handful of ecotheologians who believe that in order to do ecotheology in a responsible way, we are beholden to try and take at least some account of what is the most common consensus in the scientific community on relevant topics, even if that is going to change over time.

Celia Deane-Drummond, A Primer in Ecotheology

A mature faith is willing to make adjustments, and theology must change and grow as new discoveries reshape our understanding of nature. History shows that theologies have often, if not always, undergone wholesome transformation in the wake of new scientific understanding.

John Haught, Science and Faith: A New Introduction
