|Interesting news: I just found out the Dembski has pretty unequivocably stated that he is a Biblical inerrantist, that he believes in a six day creation, the universal flood, and no common descent between humans and other creatures. He has been non-committal and or waffled on these positions in the past.|
In a statement called "Clarification Regarding My Book The End of Christianity", quoted in "A Reply to Tom Nettles’ Review of William A. Dembski’s The End of Christianity: Finding a Good God in an Evil World," by Dr. David L. Allen, The Center for Theological Research February 2010, Dembski has written,
|In writing The End of Christianity today, I would also underscore three points: (1) As a biblical inerrantist, I accept the full verbal inspiration of the Bible and the conventional authorship of the books of the Bible. Thus, in particular, I accept Mosaic authorship of Genesis (and of the Pentateuch) and reject the Documentary Hypothesis. (2) Even though I introduce in the book a distinction between kairos (God’s time) and chronos (the world’s time), the two are not mutually exclusive. In particular, I accept that the events described in Genesis 1– 11 happened in ordinary space-time, and thus that these chapters are as historical as the rest of the Pentateuch. (3) I believe that Adam and Eve were real people, that as the initial pair of humans they were the progenitors of the whole human race, that they were specially created by God, and thus that they were not the result of an evolutionary process from primate or hominid ancestors. (William A. Dembski)"|
Might be interesting, if the opportunity arise, for someone to mention this over at UD.
