Well, it's because I gladly acknowledge some ideas that are part of process theology, but which I think are not tied to all the details of process thought, and are very illuminating and helpful.Tags: Ideas, Process, Thought
Evolution, of course, is not something that simply applies to life here on earth; it applies to the whole universe.Tags: Here, Life, Whole
Chance doesn't mean meaningless randomness, but historical contingency. This happens rather than that, and that's the way that novelty, new things, come about.Tags: Chance, Mean, Rather
I also think we need to maintain distinctions - the doctrine of creation is different from a scientific cosmology, and we should resist the temptation, which sometimes scientists give in to, to try to assimilate the concepts of theology to the concepts of science.Tags: Give, Science, Try
Science cannot tell theology how to construct a doctrine of creation, but you can't construct a doctrine of creation without taking account of the age of the universe and the evolutionary character of cosmic history.Tags: Age, History, Science
I'm a very passionate believer in the unity of knowledge. There is one world of reality - one world of our experience that we're seeking to describe.Tags: Experience, Knowledge, Reality
Those theologians who are beginning to take the doctrine of creation very seriously should pay some attention to science's story.Tags: Attention, Beginning, Science
I was very much on the mathematical side, where you probably do your best work before you're forty-five. Having passed that significant date, I thought I would do something else.Tags: Best, Thought, Work
I think it's very important to maintain the classical Christian distinction between the Creator and creation.Tags: Between, Christian, Creation
So Whitehead's metaphysics doesn't fit very well on to physics as we understand the process of the world.Tags: Physics, Process, Understand
Whitehead reacted strongly against the idea of God as a cosmic tyrant, one who brings about everything.Tags: Against, God, Idea
Yes, I was a parish priest for five years. I was a curate in a large working class parish in Bristol and the Vicar of a village in Kent.Tags: Class, Five, Working
Bottom up thinkers try to start from experience and move from experience to understanding. They don't start with certain general principles they think beforehand are likely to be true; they just hope to find out what reality is like.Tags: Experience, Hope, True
Of course, nobody would deny the importance of human beings for theological thinking, but the time span of history that theologians think about is a few thousand years of human culture rather than the fifteen billion years of the history of the universe.Tags: History, Human, Time
Quantum theory also tells us that the world is not simply objective; somehow it's something more subtle than that. In some sense it is veiled from us, but it has a structure that we can understand.Tags: Sense, Simply, Understand
After all, the universe required ten billion years of evolution before life was even possible; the evolution of the stars and the evolving of new chemical elements in the nuclear furnaces of the stars were indispensable prerequisites for the generation of life.Tags: After, Life, Universe
However, as the Eastern churches have always maintained, through Christ creation is intended eventually to share in the life of God, the life of divine nature.Tags: God, Life, Nature
