The Evolution of Terrestrial and Extraterrestrial Life, Ted Peters and Carl S. Helrich
The basic question Ted Peters posed for the 2007 Goshen Conference on Religion and Science was: Where in the world is God? In three lectures he uncovered aspects of that question and revealed some of the difficulties we encounter in answering that question. The simplicity of the claim that God is everywhere becomes mired when we turn to the realities of our life experiences on this planet. The difficulty becomes deeper if we consider our biological history. And our answer to the question must also embrace what we have learned and are learning about the universe.
The issues raised, and the responses provide insight into the question facing the conference and into Ted Peters’ thinking.
