If God "did some things in natural history" and if he did more things than
expected since He is not Tame and is rather creative and large then
shouldn't one be careful swallowing all of the modern descent by natural
mechanism story? Even if it is totally sound and logical with such a
lively God might some of Darwinism be an interesting possible path but
historically untrue.
I know this is a tangent, sorry. I like the classification bit at least as
a starting id in discussions.
