Evolution Does Not Contradict Creationism

It just contradicts a 6,000 year old earth. But then astronomy and most every other science also contradict a young earth.

I take evolution to be the history of the earth and particularly its living beings. That way it is not a theory, it is more like a history. And in my opinion there is plenty of room for cosmoic guidance during that 5 billion year history. It satisfies the minimum energy principle that appears to govern scientific law. It would be inefficient for God, in whatever form, to use a more costly method.

BTW- as a former scientist, I can report that most of my scientist friends were athiests or just did not care. But the physicists were somewhat awestruck by the machinary of the universe.
