Mind the Pregnant Hitchhiking Monkey

A curious tale from evolutionary science takes center stage as the conversation on MTE continues.

Ending the Evolution Wars requires a response to the theological objections of evolutionary skeptics. This is what Michael Murray and John Churchill attempt to accomplish in their proposal, Mere Theistic Evolution (MTE).

In his response to Mere Theistic Evolution, the theologian Tom McCall considers the what-iffery of the infamous “Pregnant Hitchhiking Monkey.” Don’t know what he is talking about? This is a pretty good story…

There are other crazy stories to learn about too. Did you know what cancer tells us about evolution?

On Mere Theistic Evolution Thomas H. McCall
The Christian community needs to see more humility from its intellectual leaders—and more patience and less pressure to crank out surefire answers to hard questions on complex issues.
Cancer and Evolution
Cancer and Evolution S. Joshua Swamidass
Evolutionary theory makes sense of cancer, giving us critical insight into how it works. Going the other direction, cancer makes sense of evolution too.
