I must be a middle if the road agnostic cause I know I don't know...
Yes, but before you said its not possible to know who or what God is, which is saying more than "I know I don't know".
But what is this you're saying to Essorant??? Are you now saying you support evolution?
I am not suggesting that Genesis does in fact describe Evolution. But I am suggesting that it may very well accomodate it
No, I don't support Evolution. I am saying that Genesis is a Theologically didactic text, not primarily written or intended to convey the detailed scientific "how" of creation. And in that sense, it may accomodate Evolution. That doesn't mean that Evolution is true. It does mean that by believing in Evolution, a person doesn't elude the Theological/cosmological implications of Genesis thereby. If Evolution were true, what it has produced would still acutely demand the Theological question.
There have been Theistic-Evolutionists whom I have greatly respected from a spiritual perspective. For example, C.S. Lewis seems to have been such ... though he did express some doubt of the science later, in some of his correspondence.
Whether you agree or no, does that clear things up, on what I'm trying say?
