← What I Think About Evolution

PaulJ's Avatar Jump to comment 25 by PaulJ

Yet I believe, as do many biologists and people of faith, that the process of creation — and indeed life today — is sustained by the hand of God in a manner known fully only to him.
It's a mystery....
The most passionate advocates of evolutionary theory offer a vision of man as a kind of historical accident. That being the case, many believers — myself included — reject arguments for evolution that dismiss the possibility of divine causality.
Evidence? No, of course I'm not going to look at the evidence. I've already made up my mind.
I firmly believe that each human person, regardless of circumstance, was willed into being and made for a purpose.
Because if that wasn't the case (God forbid...) I wouldn't be important.
While no stone should be left unturned in seeking to discover the nature of man's origins, we can say with conviction that we know with certainty at least part of the outcome. Man was not an accident and reflects an image and likeness unique in the created order. Those aspects of evolutionary theory compatible with this truth are a welcome addition to human knowledge. Aspects of these theories that undermine this truth, however, should be firmly rejected as an atheistic theology posing as science.
Or in other words, I'm in favour of any scientific inquiry that doesn't come up with results that might contradict what I already know to be true.

This is the most awful, closed-minded trash I've seen in, oh, days.
