Science, Creation and Bones

October 3, 2009

During the pre-talk coffee we got into a discussion about Creation and Orthodox viewpoints, which we may well leave to another session with a guest speaker.

I refer you to this post by Fr. Gregory Hallam

Orthodoxy and Creationism

Part of the problem is an attack by atheists on the Watchmaker view of God and Creation. Although based on an old philosophical viewpoint, this has not been the way Orthodox Christians traditionally view God’s relationship with the Universe  (although the attached flash file is quite sweet).

God did not set the ball rolling and disappear; He actively sustains the Universe. This is explained by Fr. Stephen Freeman in his blog post here.

There was also a discussion afterwards about relics due to the fact that the relics of Therese of Lisieux have been brought to the UK.

I wrote about this on my test blog last week:

What’s the point of relics?
