I want to open up the dialogue on theistic evolution. I know very little about it, all though I have read some of the literature.
Now, my biggest problem with theistic evolution used to be the age of the earth. The bible had genealogies in it that added up to only a few thousand years time, yet we know that the earth is billions of years old. However, I discussed this with blogger "Created and Rational" and he responded:
"Well it has to do with whether or not the geneologies are complete. For example in Matthew 1:8 it says that Joram begot Uzziah, however this is actually skipping several generations as Joram was Uzziah's great-great grandfather.This could be the case in the Geneologies leading from Adam to Abraham."
Indeed, it does appear the genealogies were abbrieviated. It is plausible that the earth is old and Christianity/Judaism true. But what about the evolution of man and the soul? Do theistic evolutionists think that a Homo Erectus was infused with a soul one day, or did the soul come in a little at a time? And was there a religion in the first tens of thousands of years before Moses 5,000 years ago?
