Comment from UTT:
 
Since Darwinís proposal that all life is the product of chance and time, people who profess to be Bible believing Christians, have looked for ways to promote the idea that the God of the Bible has used the process of evolution to create.
 
While this may be comforting to the person who believes that the speculation of men is superior to Godís revelation, the belief that millions of years of random chance events has molded and shaped all life on this planet, in my view, is wishful thinking and unscientific.
 
If Darwinian evolution is true, life had to have originated from non-life by some spontaneous process. The Law of Biogenesis states that all life comes from pre-existing life Ė there are no exceptions. So if this is case, how did life come into existence in the first place?
 
Further, there should be billions of examples on the Darwinian tree of life showing the progression of life from one kind to another. To date, these necessary intermediates are non-existent.
 
So why would a Christian embrace a view that evolution explains how God created? Only because their faith in man is greater than their faith in God. For years, as a teacher of Biology, I embraced a belief in evolution until my eyes were opened. You donít have to be a religious fool to believe in a biblical Creator. It only takes common sense and an examination of the facts.
 
June 15 - Darwinists for Jesus

For the last six years, he has traveled across North America with his wife, Connie Barlow, in a van that displays an image of two fish kissing each other - one labeled Jesus, the other Darwin - explaining to conservative and liberal congregations why understanding and accepting evolution will bring them closer to spiritual fulfillment.

The religious advantage to embracing the evolutionary worldview, Dowd says, is that it explains our frailties, our addictions, our infidelities and other moral deficiencies as byproducts of adaptation over billions of years. And that, he says, has a potentially liberating effect: never mind guilt; once we understand our sinful ways, we can get past them and play a conscious role in the evolution of humanity.

Dowd makes it clear that he's not talking about an intelligent designer. Instead, he exhorts his audience to supplant - or complement - their individual notions of God with sometimes-fuzzy concepts like "cosmic creativity."

Of course, Dowd is hardly the first religious figure to reconcile God and evolution. In 1996, Pope John Paul II declared that evolution was "more than just a hypothesis." And next year, the Vatican will hold a conference to mark the 150th anniversary of Darwin's "On the Origins of Species." In many respects, Dowd's work echoes the once highly influential writings of the 20th century French Jesuit and paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, who described evolution as a part of God's plan, driving all of creation toward a sort of magnetic pole of higher consciousness that he called the Omega Point.

But Dowd's preaching also draws on more contemporary scientific thinking. Central to his pitch about a "God-glorifying, Christ-edifying, Scripture-honoring way of thinking about evolution" is how findings from evolutionary psychology might help people overcome guilt about their immoral or unhealthful behaviors.

The Bible gives us very specific answers." Ham says that what Dowd is telling his audience is "no different from what an evolutionary atheist would preach" with some of Dowd's merely subjective feelings "mixed in."
