Vetekornets lag. Till dialogen mellan naturvetenskap/darwinism och kristen tro

  • Holsten Fagerberg


The Swedish poet Erik Johan Stagnelius wrote ”chaos is the neighbour of God”. With the help of this phrase, here defined as a relationship between death and life, the aim of the article is to seek a common starting-point for a dialogue between science and Christian faith. In an inevitable way life and death are twined together in nature. Without death of other living creatures, for example as food, no life can exist. In the Christian faith the same reality is central. This is in the article exemplified by texts from the Gospel of St John. and thereby (John 12:24) is formulated as the law of the wheat corn, also the title of the essay.
