I have recently purchased The Greatest Show on Earth by Richard Dawkins.
I haven’t started reading it yet and so thought I would set out my current beliefs on the origins of the world so that I can tell if and how I change my views during/after reading it.
I believe that God created the universe and everything in it.
I do not believe that the Genesis account of creation was ever meant to be used as the basis of science.
I believe that the Genesis account of creation is a poem used by a nomadic people to explain something they didn’t understand.
I think that the Genesis account is beautiful and useful and true.
I believe that my current understanding of the theory of evolution is pretty good.
I understand that the use of the word ‘theory’ doesn’t mean that there isn’t evidence for it.
I believe that evolution is a pretty wonderful theory and is beautiful and is true.
I believe that Wallace should get as much credit for the Origin of the Species as Darwin does.
I do not believe that Intelligent Design is a scientific theory.
