I had a post made as a personal message, and would like to make it a forum post for the writer:
“I had given a colleague, an atheist PhD The Language of God. I am grateful for Frances Collins book. I was reading some of the premises of Theistic evolution and the following occurred to me regarding point #4: “Once evolution got under way, no special supernatural intervention is required.” I would certainly agree with that in one way- but the following occurred to me. What creator does not tinker with his creation? Look at the Mallard duck. I was always impressed by it’s cool blue stripe Can you imagine God thinking it cool and kind of pushing the genes a little? We call “God in the gaps” an attempt to explain away speciation- but can or would a sovereign God become involved in his artwork? Let me ask you this- does God intervene in our lives today? Does he intervene in the history of mankind, in our personal lives to bring us to a more intimate knowledge of Him- why are genes off limits? Check out the mallard. Anyway, perhaps a foolish thought but just looking for some feedback.
