I am not sure there is a big difference between us on this, John. If God
can't determine the outcome, then I don't see how he could KNOW the outcome
in advance. And if God, as creator, knows the outcome of a given event,
then in some real sense He controlled it because he made everything we see.

I would also cite the use of chance and lots to chose disciples and make
decisions in the Scripture as evidence that God not only does know the
outcome He controls it.

Adam, Apes and Anthropology
Foundation, Fall and Flood
& lots of creation/evolution information
