The Missing Perspective



Reading the debate on the issue of creationism vs. evolution, I never cease to be amazed by those who reject evolution, who seem to have a very limited view of the capabilities of our Creator. They insist that all creatures and all life is “created by intelligent design” and not “evolved.”

If they will expand their view of the Creator and credit him with far more than their human minds can encompass, they might come to grips with the reality that the Creator DID create “intelligent design” — and it is called “evolution.”

I am not sure how a theory that states that living things change into other living things by chance and random processes can be a candidate for intelligent design. Does that mean that chance and random and intelligent are the same? From what I can glean from your letter I am confident that my view of the Creator has fewer limitations of what the Creator God can do than the view you have proposed. I believe that the Creator God could have brought about life any way He wanted. There are many ideas out there for what He did do, including the one in your letter. I believe that the Creator God gave man a record of what was actually done in creation through scripture written under the inspiration of that same God. I believe that the Creator God is powerful enough to state those truths in a way that is readily understandable by the believing person and to preserve those scriptures until this day. What was revealed in the scriptures is what He wanted mankind to know and believe. I believe that the first man was formed from the dust of the ground with no ancestors because that is what the Creator God tells us in His word. Is your view of the Creator God unlimited enough for you to consider these possibilities?
