9.1.10. Evolution is Atheistic

Some would say that God had no hand in the evolutionary process; i.e. the process was atheistic.

Those who see it as an atheistic process are in the minority.

"Evolution" is an evidence based description of how animals and humans came to be.

It is based on thousands of scientific observations made by thousands of scientists over 150 years.

There are no theological implications or statements associated with evolution.

Where God fits in the evolution process is up to you.

People who believe in God can find God in the process of evolution.

People who do not believe in God will not find God in the process.

Evolution does not lead people to atheism.

But once we realize that evolution is simply "a process that results in heritable changes in a population spread over many generations" it seems a little silly to pretend that this excludes religion!

The next pages demonstrate that many people find no contradiction between their faith and evolution.
