Getting God a Pass
Science, Theology, & the Consideration of Intelligent Design
by John Mark Reynolds
My son Ian loves Disneyland. Several weeks ago, he loved it so much that he decided to stay. Our four-year-old wandered away from us in a store. We spent the next twenty minutes looking for him. When he was discovered, appropriately enough, near Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, we were relieved. We found him sitting in the middle of a group of doting Disneyland cast members. He was wearing new mouse ears with his name on them and was carrying a brand-new Mickey Mouse plush toy. His brother and sisters were not amused.
