A Hybrid Theory to Reconcile Creationism and Evolution
John L Leonard
For as long as man has contemplated the origin of the universe and the life within it, the search for answers has led some to religion in pursuit of a Creator, and others believe that science, especially Darwinian natural selection has all the answers. Divine Evolution represents the author's attempt to reconcile the creationism account found in Genesis with the wealth of scientific evidence to explain life without supernaturally directed influence.
Not confined purely to religious writings or scientific textbooks, this book explores contemporary scientific evidence in support of evolution and the religious, spiritual, psychological and personal sources of information that might provide answers to the great existential questions of "Who am I?" and "How did I get here?"
Both atheists and religious people alike seek the answers to these questions. Rather than limiting the scope of the search to purely religious or purely secular sources, Divine Evolution presents an intriguing new perspective rationally developed after evaluating the physical evidence found in the fossil record, and more importantly what that evidence means. It also explores the psychological perspective of religious beliefs, and to see if any evidence exists in support for the supernatural.
