Last month I was a guest on Unbelievable?, a British radio show hosted by Justin Brierly, to discuss evolution and Christianity, specifically the historicity of Adam. The show just aired and you can listen to the show here.

On the show, too, were Denis Alexander and Fuz Rana. Denis, a molecular biologist, is the former director of The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion and the author of Creation or Evolution: Do We Have to Choose? Fuz (Fazale), a PhD in chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry, is Executive Vice Present of Research and Apologetics at Reasons to Believe  and author of The Cell’s Design: How Chemistry Reveals the Creator’s Artistry.

Both Denis and Fuz are wonderful people who present their views without rancor or defensiveness. I think some of the best exchanges were between Denis and Fuz on the degree to which we can be certain about evolution in view of the genomic evidence, and Denis pulled no punches. To summarize the gist of the 82 minute show.

1.Fuz: “Genetic studies don’t support evolution.”

2.Denis: “Sure they do.”

3. Pete: “I’m with Denis. I’m also not sure why we are still talking about this.”
