An artisitic synthetic fashion...Genesis imaging the evolutionary
record... an aesthetic comparison...

Intriguing phrases in this context! What do you mean? Are you
referring to images in the Genesis creation stories and images in

a poetical reading of the bible I have never heard of it for science.
Am I understanding you correctly? Please enlighten!
