The title is interesting. In "Evolution vs. God," we are comparing two irreconcilable things ... the natural versus the supernatural. I think this is the blind that catches most of us, at least in the beginning. In it, we try to calculate God, the supernatural being, and to calculate the exact separation of God and natural process, on the basis of "natural" science and experiment.

Can't be done. The separation is complete.

Many years ago, my father made this distinction (between natural and supernatural) and some essence of his words have always stuck with me. I think he perceived the thought slightly differently than I, but it's a note to make, and it avoids useless conjecture.

A theistic evolutionist would say that the supernatual can affect the natural, but not vice-versa. So, God COULD make evolution into a slow motion creation, couldn't he? And his supernatural power would influence our natural perception ... but never the twain shall meet.
