Does convergent evolution point to God?


(RiderOnTheClouds) #1

There are many examples of convergent evolution, birds and bats, whales and manatees, snakes, slow-worms, caecilians, and amphisbaenia, to give a few examples. Is this merely the result of a shared environment, or does it point to something more, does it mean that evolution was intended to bring about certain characteristics? Does it point to purpose?

No scientific discipline or the natural activities associated with a particular area of research can definitively “point to” or “detect” God.

But it can be a “reason” to believe in God’s existence. I trust you understand the distinction I’m clumsily trying to make here.
