A greater expression of the remainder of Creation, than an exertion of Evolution?

    Hi there,

    So yes, Jesus said "Gather up the fragments that remain, that none be lost" (paraphrase) - this applies to Evolution too: it's possible to have a greater expression of the remainder of Creation, than an exertion of the better of Evolution. This is because Evolution precipitates pressure against remaining the same, whereas Creation welcomes a diversion along the lines of that which has already come, but may not be expressed as completely new.

    You can have a greater Creation, with what's left, than you can have an Evolution of that which is still coming!

    The logic is that what was created was created with a design in mind, the liberal interpretation of which is able to utilize things like instinct and play, sharing and mastery, to bring about a cohesive interpretation of what already was, not merely assumptions of that which may yet come to pass. The basketballer who plays on the B team, may flourish in offence more than the position of offence on the A team - simply because the traits he shares with the rest of the team are more in tune with what they can do, not what they can imagine.

    The fundamental is compassion. With compassion, there is hope that an evolution that previously was not good enough, might find a creative alternative that brings that potential to life, simply because it is not demanding everything of that potential. If the other path had been taken and evolution had been expected, that potential may have been overworked and destroyed. Evolution is basically pride, it does not allow for compassion, because it has to be the best. Compassion does not have to be the best.

    There is mastery in this, then: because the one showing compassion, can be there for the one trying to evolve. Being there, the one showing compassion, can become a light to the one trying to evolve, until the one trying to evolve reaches a point of reflection, that his evolution can be seen in. The one showing compassion, does not need to change the evolution of the one trying to evolve - he has peace. This peace is for all.

    Creation with the One Creator of all things visible & invisible is diametrically OPPOSED to the theory of naturalistic evolution. There is no peace between the basic tenets of both.
