RE: [asa] Question for all the theistic evolutionists

I haven't responded to this thread because I don't consider myself a TE.
I'm more of an Evidentiary Realist. The mass of evidence falls on the
existence of God, therefore I believe in Him. The historicity of Christ
can't be easily denied, so He lived. His teachings are consistent and
meaningful, His life was exemplary, His death and resurrection were
reported by witnesses who were martyred for their unshakeable testimony.
So I believe.

The evidence for the interconnectedness of life is overwhelming so I
believe all life forms are connected by mutual shared common ancestry.
If God intervened in the progression of life I can see some good places
where he could have and didn't, so I don't think He does. Or if He does
He certainly has been clandestine about it.

There is quantitative evidence to suggest that Genesis 2-11 comes
directly from and is embedded in the history of the ancient Near East,
therefore Genesis is believable and has historical integrity.

In short, I go with the flow of evidence wherever it leads and I would
rather devote my remaining time on God's green planet to getting the log
out of our eyes giving us a better message with which to win the critics
over whether they be atheists or misguided Christians.
