Why I'm Not a Theistic Evolutionist

« Why Apologetics Has a Bad Name | Main | The Disciples and the art of deception »



As evolutionary biologist Francisco Ayala remarks, scientists in the field do not use "random" in the sense of "unguided" which is a metaphysical claim unavailable to science. Rather, they mean "irrespective of the benefit to the organism."

With this definition of "random", theism and evolution are wholly compatible. Unfortunately, despite his excellent apologetic work, I think Mr. Wallace is mistaken on this issue.

I always said so. It's called "natural" selection, not "supernatural" selection. Besides, another of the dirty plays of theism is they reconcile theories, but they never prove any. Evolution through natural selection is a verified scientific theory. Reconciling a divine intervention is not proving that divine intervention. It's simply smuggling a god without feeling the need to back up that presumption.

Watching the National Geographic Chanel this week I heard the comment "out of Chaos came order.".... now if that isn't a contradiction of terms I don't know what is. In the beginning God. That says it all, answers it all, and puts all into perspective. Personally I subscribe to the Big Bang. God spoke and Bang it happened.

I urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. Jude 3

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 2 Peter 1:16
