EVOLUTION VS CREATION OR EVOLUTION AND CREATION

One problem that I have with believing wholeheartedly in the concept of evolution versus a divine creation is that it seems that everything is too well-balanced. I mean, it seems as though every little minute detail has been too well thought of and implemented to be simply reduced to a matter of evolution (a happenstance form of development). Now, I don't have any problems with using the term "evolution" with a process of "creation". Take for example the magnificent "evolution" of the automobile. I guess it's a matter of semantics with me when using the term evolution and the term creation. Obviously the automobile was created or invented, but through the process of evolution – time – it has become a wonder. Now I guess it could be inferred that I'm suggesting that "in the beginning" as referring to God's time and His creation of the world that it has been a refinement or has been a development or progression in becoming the "perfection" ("in the beginning") that it is now.

Two points:

1. I highlighted the term "perfection" in that I don't know what perfection is. I mean, is the world perfect; are our bodies perfect? Certainly no one would argue or try to suggest that a child born with Down Syndrome was "perfect". Yes, the value of that child may be perfect – I'm not arguing that. There are many people who would try to argue my point by suggesting that "in God's eyes we are all perfect."

2. Was the world in a "perfect" state before its physical creation (" in/from the beginning"), or has the "perfection" of the world been a matter of time – I matter of progression – an "evolutionary" progress?

An evolutionary thought – more to come...
