    Peter - I appreciate your work in sumamrizing views. I'm out of town
    teaching for much of the week for awhile, which accounts for delay & brevity
    in my reply. At this point I'll just note a couple of things:
            1) Some care is needed in defining "miracle". I am uncomfortable
    with the suggestion of "huge" numbers of miracles.
            2) As I've noted before, how God acts - or doesn't act - at the
    quantum level is something that needs to be dealt with even apart from the
    possible role of such action in evolutionary processes.
