BioLogos Leader Giberson Resigns

The theistic evolutionary think tank BioLogos has announced that Executive Vice President Karl Giberson recently resigned his post. In a May 16 article, BioLogos president Darrel Falk confirmed Giberson's departure, stating that "Karl is leaving both of the former positions to create more time for writing."1 Dr. Giberson also taught physics at Eastern Nazarene College in Boston.

The BioLogos Foundation was launched by Dr. Francis Collins, who was appointed by President Barack Obama to head the National Institutes of Health. BioLogos teaches that while God may exist, evolution is responsible for all that we see around us. Giberson, Falk, and other leaders at BioLogos, such as Senior Fellow Peter Enns—who has recently come under fire amongst evangelicals for his Bible story curriculum published by Susan Wise Bauer—promote the Genesis account as largely symbolic, particularly concerning creation, the existence of Adam and Eve, the Fall, and other foundational truths of the Bible.

Evangelicals have been disturbed by Protestant scholars like Giberson, Falk, and Enns because of their insistence that Scripture can accommodate evolutionary ideas. Dr. Albert Mohler of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has stated the effect of such aberrant ideas promoted by Giberson (read "Throwing the Bible Under the Bus"). Since 2009, ICR and others have been detailing the views of Francis Collins and the BioLogos leaders, alerting evangelical Christians to beware of those who place science over Scripture and the finite musings of men over the clear revelation from God in the Bible (read "Purpose-Driven Drift: Francis Collins and the Doctrine of BioLogos").

Not out of the game completely, Dr. Giberson will continue to contribute his voice to the promotion of evolution through several books he will be publishing in the coming months. He also writes editorials for The Huffington Post.
