#15 Summary

The creation of life through the creation of genes made of DNA was:

  • Perfect – this means that the information encoding the living being was complete and whole
  • Each act of creation was specific and instantaneous
  • Creation was a rare occurrence and happened only at the major branching points in the tree of life
  • Creation happened according to the purposes of God

The evolution of this created life was:

  • Based on random mutation which is an error in the replication of DNA and so imperfect
  • Natural selection conserves the useful errors
  • The processes of evolution occur over time.  A time scale of millions of years reveals the changes that have taken place
  • Evolution occurs in accord with general laws of nature

A true understanding of science and a true understanding of what evolution actually consists of – could lead to a true theology that would glorify God as the true Creator of life.
