Theistic evolution is a balancing act that few can accomplish and still
fewer master. The fundamental problem is how do you fit Jesus the Christ
in the history of life on Earth? The latter is usually accomplished in
what seems to me a very ad hoc manner.

Subject: [asa] Question for all the theistic evolutionists

I won't be here long, but this is the best place to get a question
Many of you know that over the past 10 years, I have struggled with
or not to become an atheist. I now am totally past that point having
out of the struggle with some really great arguments against atheism,
I have used on the internet successfully. But, in all this, I have
about a YEC complaint against us TE's. And that is what my question is

1. Why is it that I so rarely see theistic evolutionists directly
confronting atheists on the internet when they dis our religion?
2. Has anyone engaged in a direct internet debate on a forum against
or against an atheist? (if so, where is it?)
3. are we really, as my friend Wil Provine suggests, merely practical
atheists? (a people whose religion makes no real difference to the
intellectual climate of society?)
3a alternatively, are we merely the lapdogs of the atheists, who use us,
Phil Johnson suggests, but who don't respect us (I guess are we a one
stand for the atheists pleasure?)

I will not debate, I am interested in the responses.
