You Say You Want Some Evolution...
Here is a letter that I found helpful in today's Elizabethton Star:
Reader: Same God over all
Response to recent letters regarding evolution vs. creationism.
Those who ask from science a final argument, an ultimate proof, an unassailable position from which the issue of God may be decided will always be disappointed. As a scientist I claim no new proofs, no revolutionary data, no stunning insight into nature that can tip the balance in one direction or another. But I do claim that to a believer, even in the most traditional sense, evolutionary biology is not at all the obstacle we often believe it to be. In many respects, evolution is the key to understanding our relationship with God.
Whose God do I believe in? The God of Abraham. And, the God of Darwin. They are and can be one and the same.
