Your Interview: Daniel Fairbanks, author of Relics of Eden

Questions about whether God had a role in creating life directly, indirectly, or at all – and even whether there is a God – can inflame debate and passions. Daniel Fairbanks, author of Relics of Eden, a book about the "fossils" in our DNA that show how life evolved, believes no reasonable person who looks at the evidence can deny evolution.

Dr. Fairbanks, the Dean of Undergraduate Education at Brigham Young University and a geneticist, also believes in God. He argues that it is a false dichotomy to say a person cannot believe in both evolution and God.

Do you have any questions about the fossils in our genetic material? Do you doubt someone can accept evolution and believe in God? If you have a question for Dr. Fairbanks, post it here - we will forward it to him and he will answer as many as he can over the next few days.
