Theistic Evolution

Epic of evolution

Theistic evolution is a concept that asserts that classical religious teachings about God are compatible with the modern scientific understanding about biological evolution. In short, theistic evolutionists believe that there is a God, that God is the creator of the material universe and (by consequence) all life within, and that biological evolution is simply a natural process within that creation. Evolution, according to this view, is simply a tool that God employed to develop human life.

Theistic evolution is not a scientific theory, but a particular view about how the science of evolution relates to religious belief and interpretation. Theistic evolution supporters can be seen as one of the groups who reject the conflict thesis regarding the relationship between religion and science – that is, they hold that religious teachings about creation and scientific theories of evolution need not contradict. Proponents of this view are sometimes described as Christian Darwinists.

One Comment to “Theistic Evolution”

  1. Christian Darwinists, I think they are more abundant than people may actually think.

    However, I find that the connection between religion and science is important in the form of philosophical and theoretical ideologies about the universe we live in. This strays from Christianity and dwells more with the teachings of Hinduism and Taoism, as bleeding edge theoretical physics is crossing over into religious philosophies to understand supernatural occurrences that exceed human perceptions of reality.

    Like the idea that humans and atoms are all interconnected within a whole of a universe, and that our human consciousness is not only connected to the physical environment, but all of the cosmos regarding not only the creation and dispersion of energy, but an instantaneous ‘information’ connection between all things within the universe. I like religion and science philosophies :D
