Evolutionary Creation? [EvolutionBlog]

Aug 20, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: ScienceBlogs

A while back I did a post criticizing the idea that theistic evolution is a form of intelligent design.

They should relabel it as "planned evolution" perhaps, or "predetermined evolution" then it would be less apt for getting the negative stereotype of the word "creation" and it would also make more logical sense.

'Theist evolutionist'according to the author put's the emphasis on endorsing science based evolution sec and leaves theism for any sparetime.

Evolutionist theist. Just tasting the difference.

But both sound to much as if they are busy determining the evolution of a god-credo. Finding a reason to believe in a go, or substituting a god. He means afterall to disassociate fundamentalism from the notion creationist. Well ET or TE that's usually found and called text-critical analysis of the bible.

ET sounds however not all that bad LOL

Today i read an article that is not dissimilar to this one.

From 'Frothing-at-the-mouth' Fundies to 'Veins-popping-out-of-the-neck ' Atheists, there is an enormous palette of different spiritual beliefs, and just as much of a variety of concepts as to the origin of the universe, life, and the diversity of life.

Suffice to say, a handful of categories to put people in regarding their personal philosophy will not be enough.

For some reason my computer stops acting.
not funny.
But it was from the same blog site. Epigenetics....

Here a different believe-systems adherers (Deepak as speech-person) that try to reconcile evolution and take liberties, are named 'quacks'.
Creationists would not act that different.
Brushing up the shield would not hide the intent.

So all things being equal why not call it QE"

On the whole i think it a silly business.

It's and/and. It can't be and/or. Or show shades of that old prejudice that called other believe systems pagan or heretical, evil and to be denigrated.
Evolution is. So all that underwrite that are Evolutionaries.-ist usually denotes some political connotation. As if it is a mere opportune theory and not fact.
Theory is the highest accolade in science, but in ordinary understanding it gives rise to the connotation 'assertion'.

not intending to clog the thread.
I can't recall people ever being called Einsteinists or Einsteinairies. Or Bohrists.
'Do you understand Einsteins theorems' or short,'do you understand relativity'.
The same approach should be kept on evolution.

Theistic Evolution is a combined philosophical/scientific position.

The SCIENCE part of this would be "Evolution is a demonstrated reality supported by multiple sciences."

The PHILOSOPHY (or religion) part would be "God created all this and has chosen to work through the process of evolution."

Part of the above is empirically verifiable, part is not.:)

philosophist-evolutionist

Hmm that skips over certain ancient hebrew grammar in reading that starts at page 1 of the hebrew bible.
In short those do not bite evolution at all.
It does not state that god created all this...
Text-critical reading shows that the intention of the elohists priests was to establish set prayer times.

Apart from any other believes or convictions that people migh have.
