What does evolution tell us about what God is like…
Have recently discovered this fantastic community .
I’ve been in a real journey reading up on evolution mainly driven by a conviction that Jesus is truth and therefore truth tells us something about Him.
I refuse to have a worldview that supresses the search for truth or a faith that can’t handle questions.
As far as I see it theism and evolution match up well.
However , I see some tension between our Heavenly Father , his character and evolutionary theory .
God being happy with animal suffering ( what does this say about what he is like)
Animal mutations and diseases pre fall.
Creating and wiping out the dinasours by smacking an asteroid into the earth (what does this communicate about His character ?)
Choosing at one moment to turn a a non human into a human.
To clarify - I’m not looking for someone to explain these away , rather to look them in the face - pre suppose they are all true - and then ask what does that say about what God is like ?
Any thoughts ?
