Obama has appointed Francis Collins, head of the Human Genome Project and author of The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief, to head the National Institutes of Health.

Collins, once an atheist, eventually found “that one could build a very strong case for the plausibility of the existence of God on purely rational grounds.”

I have found there is a wonderful harmony in the complementary truths of science and faith. The God of the Bible is also the God of the genome. God can be found in the cathedral or in the laboratory. By investigating God’s majestic and awesome creation, science can actually be a means of worship.

He also began the BioLogos Foundation (highlighted previously on WMB), which drew controversy from both atheists and theists alike, for advocating the compatibility between theism and evolution.
