Greg shows that Darwinism is driven by philosophy more than science. I'm mystified by the opening sentence of an article in Friday's Union Tribune (October 25, 1996). It says, "In his most comprehensive statement yet on evolution, Pope John Paul II insisted that faith and science can co-exist."
Those who choose to believe in determinism or physicalism don't choose to believe at all - they believe because of prior physical conditions. I want to talk about a concept that I've been rolling around in my mind. In fact, I've talked to you about it before, but it has come to the front of my mind because I've started to take classes again in my master's program over at Talbot under J.P. Moreland. It's a class on metaphysics dealing with naturalism.
Could it be the evolutionists who are being irrational? Is it possible that God design everything using natural selection?

I like to relax in a chair and think of absolutely nothing. But this summer I took a slightly different approach: I studied physics, quantum theory, relativity, cosmology, embryology, and genetics – all in ten days. Not necessarily a relaxing summer, but at least I had some lemonade.
