Talking Evolution Gets Bible Scholar Canned

Whether God and evolution can coexist comfortably is still a hot topic in some quarters. Bruce Waltke, a prominent Old Testament scholar, was forced to resign his position at the Reformed Theological Seminary, an evangelical seminary in Oviedo, Florida, after saying evangelical Christianity is going to be sidelined as a "cult" if it denies evolution.

A video of the talk was made during a workshop at the BioLogos Foundation, a group founded by National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins that argues science and faith are not incompatible. "These are perilous times for the educated Christian," says Waltke in a joint statement issued with BioLogos President Darrel Falk.
