First of all this suggests that Humans were the expected outcome of Godâ€™s creation and while it is easy to understand this flawed logic, after all, we are the outcome of Godâ€™s creation, this should not be confused with a forward looking goal. In fact, it is easy to argue that Godâ€™s Creation was set in motion to eventually result in a form of life which could gain spirituality and a soul and thus become aware of His existence. Furthermore, even if God had set in motion a Darwinian process, He could still have intervened, as I have explained above, without violating natural law. In other words, the process would still appear purely Darwinian and at the same time would be guided.
So contrary to the fallacious claims that â€˜true Darwinistsâ€™ cannot be â€˜true Christiansâ€™, it is self evident that such a position is not logically tenable.
What I find puzzling is why people are intent on rejecting the good science of Darwinism and evolutionary theory as somehow being incompatible with their faith. That shows both a disregard for science, which is a typical ID Creationist affliction, as well as a significant lack in faith.

I totally agree. Do you know how many times I’ve been shouted down by Christians because I don’t believe that science (Darwinism) really has anything to do with whether or not there’s a God?
WHEW Sweet! Now that that is out of the way the real world can continue marching on.
