Between 1965 and 1985, the ASA’s views earned both support and criticism. In 1965, a small number of leaders travelled to Oxford for the International Conference on Science and Christian Faith. Convinced that neither theological liberalism nor antievolutionary creationism was viable, this select group explored the most pressing scientific issues confronting the churches. The event, which was organized by the RSCF, affirmed the views the ASA had developed over the previous fifteen years and laid the foundation for an enduring relationship between the two bodies. Meanwhile, as the ASA became more comfortable with evolution, while Americans in general did not, the questions facing the ASA shifted. The organization seemingly had to choose between alienating its more conservative coreligionists for greater acceptance among the scientific community or downplaying its acceptance of evolution in order to retain the support of the evangelical community.
