If There Were a God…
If there were a god interfering with evolution, the god should have an effect. You would see violations of Darwinian behaviour e.g.
- Animals evolving features not currently useful, but that will eventually evolve into something useful.
- Animals that are less adept at avoiding predators prevailing without some compensating advantage.
- Some sign of moral judgment — animals with disgusting or cruel habits unexpectedly going extinct. Ichneumon wasps have grossed-out many a Christian including Darwin.
If there is a god, he seems to have a hands-off philosophy. He might as well not exist in terms of understanding evolution.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
