In and out of favour: Darwinism

I've always considered the arguments for and against Darwinism to be strange. It is expected that if you accept the theory of evolution, then it is not possible for you to believe in God. And if you reject Darwinism, then you must be against science.

I love how this article illustrates that this issue is not black and white.


God is the most creative driving force; life in His hands is an elegantly complex construct with endless variation. The theory of natural selection, to my mind, shed some light as to how God does what He does; but it does not answer everything. Therefore, there is room for discussion and expansion when one tries to understand how life is shaped and what allows it to continue to exist.

And yes, even in science (more like, especially), mileage may vary.
