I suppose that one reason I have always detested religion is its sly tendency to insinuate the idea that the universe is designed with 'you' in mind or, even worse, that there is a divine plan into which one fits whether one knows it or not. Theistic evolution (also evolutionary creationism) is a theological response to the scientific theory of evolution, aimed at reconciling that theory with religious myths involving a creator deity, and is a form of old earth creationism.Supporters of theistic evolution generally believe in the creator deity unreservedly, and also accept the theory of evolution to varying degrees.In recent decades neo-Darwinist James Lovelock, noting the biosphere’s ability to physiologically self-regulate, developed a materialistic explanation for this phenomenon known as the , named for the Greek goddess Gaia or ‘mother earth’.
This God may be posited to know that under this natural law, life, even specifically human life, would be the result.
The term "theistic evolution" arose out of the creation vs.
evolution debate, which was often portrayed as a choice between atheistic evolution and theistic creationism, with no middle ground.
