How did an Electron Evolve to Know When Man is Looking at It, and Thus Change It's Course?

How did an electron evolve to know when man is looking at it?

  1. An electron cannot evolve like this, it is God who controls electrons, and thus what man sees

  2. We should put the study of evolution on hold till we figure this out.

  3. It does not matter if evolution does not hold up at the quantum level.

    We see in scripture that God can control whatever portion of the Universe He likes. Looking at the wonder of creation, we see that this Universe operates steadily by consistent laws of nature, as we see -- gravity, light, electricity, chemistry. Consistent. Regular. Dependable. Light continues to travel at its fantastic speed. All the Universe operates consistently, so we say the Universe is simply 'physics in action', operating perfectly according to the perfect design of this particular physics we are discovering. A perfect design, that works, and doesn't need constant control to operate it would seem. So, I take the verses like Colossians 1:17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. to mean what they mean in context (of all of scripture really) that God can intervene at will to alter nature (as we read of Him doing many specific times in the Old Testament! Interventions). So, while the Universe/physics operates at His pleasure so to speak, and he can adjust it at any moment as He chooses, it also appears to run very perfect, like a perfect machine. Elegant and amazing. So, we'd have no basis to think that nature doesn't work on it's own, as it's God own creation He made, and would seem then it ought to be 'good' also in the sense of being perfectly functional, that apparently being how He designed it to be, evidently operating according to consistently constant laws of physics we find. Thus when I read about God intervening such as stopping the progress of a day -- Joshua 10:13 So the sun stood still and the moon stopped until the nation took vengeance upon its enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? "So the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day." -- that's not what usually happens, but instead an actual intervention of God, an 'act of God'. Therefore, God doesn't need to 'control every particle', because He already did that work making Nature to being with!
