Problems for more science-friendly creationist ideas
Professor Lenski's results might also give problems to ideas such as guided evolution and theistic evolution.
The idea behind guided evolution is that the process of evolution is somehow guided by God. However the actual nature of this guidance is rarely, if ever, articulated. If however the idea is that all evolution is guided, then the inference surely is that God intervened in Professor Lenski's experiment in order to give his bacteria this new ability. Whether guided evolutionists would actually want to go this far is an interesting question.
Theistic evolutionists tend take care to avoid making claims that they have a scientific theory and they vary on exactly how much miraculous intervention (if any) they maintain is necessary for Theistic Evolution to operate. Nevertheless, it would also be interesting to know if the more interventionist believers would go so far as to say that god intervened in the experiment.
AiG is OEC?
- Both AiG and CMI are YEC. I have used too many acronyms in too few words. ListenerXTalkerX 04:07, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
Weird title for the article
- Given the brevity of the Lenski article, I will call it a no-brainer. Merge. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 20:18, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
