It's revealing to see the tactical and strategic priorities of BioLogos. The contributors to BioLogos think evolution is a fact. They think evolution is consistent with a suitably reformulated Christian theology. They think Christians who deny evolution and claim that Christian theology is incompatible with evolution drive people away from the faith. Prevent unbelievers from giving Christianity serious consideration. They think Christian opposition to evolution creates a gratuitous impediment to faith.
Let's concede all that for the sake of argument. Consider this:
Notice anything amiss? They target churches and Christian colleges. They try to recruit theistic evolutionists by attacking young-earth creationism, old-earth creationism, and intelligent design theory.
Now, what's striking about this is what they don't do. Notice where the don't go poaching for converts to theistic evolution. They don't put nearly the same effort into frequenting secular college campuses and recruiting converts from science majors in general or biology majors in particular. They don't sponsor or host debates between BioLogos spokesmen and secular paleontologists or evolutionary biologists.
Their efforts are directed at folks who already profess to be Christian. They don't make the case for theistic evolution with professors at scientific bastions like MIT, Cornell, Caltech, Harvard, Chicago U, the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton), &c. Yet if they think theistic evolution is scientifically defensible and intellectually respectable, why don't they routinely go head-to-head with secular scientists whose speciality intersects with evolution?
Evidently, they think theistic evolution is only plausible to Christians, not to secular scientists. After all, if theistic evolution is scientifically credible, shouldn't the recruitment pool draw from Christians and atheists alike? Why focus on turning Christians? Why not concentrate similar resources in turning unbelievers who major in science? Why is their emphasis so lopsided?
Seems to betray a lack of confidence in the scientific credibility of theistic evolution when they are so reticent to test their claims against an audience that comes to the issue from a purely scientific standpoint, with no theological presuppositions. They avoid a tough audience.
