Though we’ve had well over 150 years to get used to it, the idea of God using evolution to create makes some Christians uncomfortable, as evidenced by a Facebook user commenting on this photo this morning, who said the God of the Bible wouldn’t “introduce a system based on mutational mistakes for the creation.”
Of course, evolution is based on much more than that, but the bottom line is that none of our opinions matter when it comes to how God chose to create, and the evidence shows either that he used evolution, or went to great pains to make it look like he did. And his using evolution doesn’t contradict the biblical account unless one reads Genesis 1-3 in a way I don’t believe it was meant to be read.
One day, everything will be revealed. Until then, all we can do is make sense of the evidence as best we can. And, stay thirsty.
