Re: [asa] Chicago Tribune on TE (and the "Evangelical Statement on Evolution")

I was sent this a few days ago by someone, and my reaction is pretty much
the same as David's. This article does imply that there are some
evangelical, non-process, approaches to evolution, and gives Collins as an
example. But it does quite inaccurately imply that process is what TE
mainly is. That's simply wrong.

There are plenty of process thinkers in the TE camp, but also plenty who
aren't. Starting with Polkinghorne, who's often seen wrongly as a process
theologian despite his clear statements that he is not, accompanied by
detailed reasons why he is not.

And Polkinghorne, IMO, is the top science/Christianity writer on the
present landscape.
