Creative evolution


Opinion reads: God got the world started and then stepped in as needed to give it direction, such as when he added walking fins and lungs to fish. Evolution was a tool God used to create the world to change it as needed.

Sometimes a lack of perfection, and perceived mistakes in evolution, are taken as evidence against a God directed creation. It seems to me this argument misses the point, however, as no one is claiming that the workproduct of evolution is perfect. It is in the recognition of imperfection that we discover the Divine directions, because it is with such a recognition that a more perfect goal can be sought.
