    If this formational history is without constant divine control, it is
    deism. If all holds together by the constant attention of the Son, who
    also brought it into being, then the results are divinely guided without
    new creative interventions. This appears to be the situation from the
    origin of life through its evolutionary differentiation. It cannot apply
    to human life if each human soul is created--Roman Catholic dogma widely
    accepted by others. It is problematic with traducianism, for soul is not
    a physical entitity, but had to have been added to a non-ensouled entity.
    Only if soul or mind is a pure product of brain does this fit the whole.

    in the universešs formational history without need for any supplemental
    acts of divine form-imposing intervention.
