The question about evolution and the image of God is really just a
specialization of the question
"Could God have created by means of evolution?" The answer to that, of
course, is "Yes." & that being the case, God could have made humanity the
image of God at some epoch of the evolutionary process. It really is that
simple. Trying to create a controversy about this is an attempt to pose the
discredited "creation or evolution" choice in new garb.
