Science and religion need not be enemies in exploration of the origin and meaning of life. Each has its proper place in considering what Charles Darwin called the “mystery of mysteries.” When properly understood, scientific research and Christian theological reflection contribute to a deeper understanding of these mysteries. On Our Origins explores both the scientific and scriptural narratives of creation and engages in a respectful conversation between the two. Instead of rejecting faith or science, it explores both in order to propose a reasonable and holistic Christian understanding of human existence. Many aspects of this timely discussion will culminate in an examination of the claims of Christ. Does faith in Jesus of Nazareth as Savior undermine science? Or has Jesus connected humanity to the Creator in a way that brings the spiritual and physical into harmonious relationship? This is an all-important mystery we seek to unravel because we will never know who we are until we come to terms with from whence we’ve come. “In the beginning, God …” WWW.ONOURORIGINS.ORG

Are religions intrinsically violent (as is strenuously argued by the ‘new atheists’)? Or, as Girard argues, have they been functionally rational instruments developed to manage and cope with the intrinsically violent runaway dynamic that characterizes human social organization in all periods of human history? Is violence decreasing in this time of secular modernity post-Christendom (as argued by Steven Pinker and others)? Or are we, rather, at increased and even apocalyptic risk from our enhanced powers of action and our decreased socio-symbolic protections? Rene Girard’s mimetic theory has been slowly but progressively recognized as one of the most striking breakthrough contributions to twentieth-century critical thinking in fundamental anthropology: in particular for its power to model and explain violent sacralities, ancient and modern. The present volume sets this power of explanation in an evolutionary and Darwinian frame. It asks: How far do cultural mechanisms of controlling violence, which allowed humankind to cross the threshold of hominization—i.e., to survive and develop in its evolutionary emergence—still represent today a default setting that threatens to destroy us? Can we transcend them and escape their field of gravity? Should we look to—or should we look beyond—Darwinian survival? What—and where (if anywhere)—is salvation?
