HI leok and welcome to the forum.

Now I think we're really getting somewhere.

Hi Nikolai, My personal belief is that by way of a false assumption we divide evolution from intelligent design as if they were divisible. The actual reality from my view point is that Intelligent Design is the impetus for Evolution / Intelligent Design encompasses Evolution. As far as the question ...
