I think that's a better (yet still not complete) definition. The issue of
monogenism vs polygenism also come into the picture, as well as whether
(or not) God intervened at one or more points in the unfolding or created
brand new life forms from scratch.
The best complete set of definitions for all this I've run across (so
far) is available on the web site of Loren Haarsma, and I recommend his
John Burgeson (Burgy)
(science/theology, quantum mechanics, baseball, ethics,
humor, cars, God's intervention into natural causation, etc.)
