It seems evangelical creationists are the bad guys. A bit disappointed to see these 2 articles (one & two) at bethinking.org, but I suppose they are wanting people to think, which is good. Here is how the first article ends, “Arguably, attacks by well-meaning Christians on evolution promote rather than counteract atheism.” So, to be against evolution is to be against God. Thanks for that.
That being said, there are some articles that promote an alternate view at the site as well.
I’m hesitant to get into a debate about this issue, but just a few questions for the theistic evolutionist to answer (none new, but none that have be adequately answered either):
– At what point does the image of God enter into creatures who have evolved to human status? Is this something that is earned by reaching a certain evolutionary point?
– It seems extremely difficult to maintain the historicity of Adam and Eve.
– Death before the fall?
– By implication/necessity there would be a need for Christ to come even without the fall for one of the results of his work of redemption is the redemption of creation.
– Are the resurrection bodies something we’ll evolve into as well? Why not?
– Should we seek to explain something scientifically that is miraculous?
