2013 Evolution Weekend

This year marks the eighth annual Evolution Weekend. While all participating congregations will address the relationship between religion and science, many will focus their attention on the theme selected for this year: evolution in the modern world. 

8 - 10 February 2013 -- Evolution Weekend

Evolution Weekend is an opportunity for serious discussion and reflection on the relationship between religion and science. An ongoing goal has been to elevate the quality of the discussion on this critical topic, and to show that religion and science are not adversaries. Rather, they look at the natural world from quite different perspectives and ask, and answer, different questions.

Religious people from many diverse faith traditions and locations around the world understand that evolution is quite simply sound science; and for them, it does not in any way threaten, demean, or diminish their faith in God. In fact, for many, the wonders of science often enhance and deepen their awe and gratitude towards God.

The importance of the relationship between religion and science is not just a theoretical one. When the science of evolution is mischaracterized for partisan gain, there are very real consequences for society. The theory of evolution, for example, has led to innumerable medical advances, is responsible for amazing agricultural innovations that have helped us feed the hungry, and can provide the knowledge needed to preserve endangered ecosystems. Similarly, given the centrality of evolution to the scientific enterprise, when the theory of evolution is summarily dismissed, the very nature of science is called into question and our educational system is undermined in a dangerous manner.

Because of the importance that so many religious leaders, like their scientific colleagues, place on evolution, many participants in Evolution Weekend 2013 have opted to discuss the role evolution plays in the modern world. One important facet of Evolution Weekend 2013, therefore, is to explore how the promotion of "alternative views" to evolution is directly at odds with the religious teachings of participants and to examine the negative consequences such a perspective has on society broadly.

Through sermons, discussion groups, meaningful conversations and seminars, the leaders listed below show that religion and science are not adversaries. 

To examine some of the sermons members of The Clergy Letter Project have delivered on this topic, to find scientific consultants willing to help answer questions or to read media reports about our activities, please explore our web pages. Similarly, if you want to examine some liturgical resources created and recommended by Clergy Letter Project members for Evolution Weekend, click here.

Whatever way participants choose to celebrate Evolution Weekend, their activities demonstrate, as do The Clergy Letters themselves, which have now been signed by more than 13,500 members of the clergy in the United States, that those claiming that people must choose between religion and science are creating a false dichotomy.
