I do not accept the implication that my position requires miracles,
conceptual spinoffs from the resurrection of Jesus. You keep laying miracles
on my position. Staged creation is adding capabilities to creation, not
setting aside the laws of nature, or acting outside these laws for redemptive
purposes, as I see miracles.
Staged creations are exceptions from your frame of reference, not mine.
Theologically speaking, I see no problem with saying that staged creation was
planned from the beginning of creation.
But I think we are repeating ourselves.
I hope the best of Advent seasons for you,
