We're pleased to announce an update is coming to the community boards.
Saturday, September 24th: We are migrating the boards to a new platform. The site is currently in read-only mode and we will bring it back online as soon as the migration is complete.
What I think is the really interesting issue in the conflict between creationism and evolution is the one that deChardin and more recently Tipler and Robert Wright wrote about. This is whether evolution, both biological and cultural, is random or directed. And by directed I don't mean in the sense of angels stepping in periodically to make flagella for bacteria (what an odd theology!). I mean directed in that the universe is constructed in a way to achieve a particular result. there's a kind of quasi-continuum:Universe just is.Universe created and left alone.Universe created such that certain kinds of things likely, but left aloneUniverse created such that very specific things would happen, but no intervention neededUniverse created a specific intended & some intervention ( 'let's give bacteria flagella', 'let's make people', 'let's play a joke on Abraham' ) required.=
