3. Madeline, that's been the view of the Catholic Church and...
...a good many other Christian sects. Evolution is a process that is part of God's plan for creation. FWIW, I think (from a Christian viewpoint) the idea of a God who could create such an incredibly intricate, yet functional, self-correcting web of life, and release it spin itself through billions of cycles of change and growth (with, presumably, an overarching purpose on a level so 'meta' we can only dimly perceive it--'through a darkened glass') is a much more powerful and moving Deity than the guy with the white beard who sez "poof" and makes stuff "just the way it is."

But hey, whatthehell do I know...

philosophically,
Bright
