Summary

No God, No Science: Theology, Cosmology, Biology presents a work of philosophical theology that retrieves the Christian doctrine of creation from the distortions imposed upon it by positivist science and the Darwinian tradition of evolutionary biology.

  • Argues that the doctrine of creation is integral to the intelligibility of the world
  • Brings the metaphysics of the Christian doctrine of creation to bear on the nature of science
  • Offers a provocative analysis of the theoretical and historical relationship between theology, metaphysics, and science
  • Presents an original critique and interpretation of the philosophical meaning of Darwinian biology
