"Continuous creation" is not my term, but a theological term that has
been around for awhile (I don't know its full history). It captures
my firm theological position that ALL of creation is sustained and
upheld by God' s continuous personal participation in it. Such a
view does not require any causal gaps in our scientific description
of natural processes. But it also makes not specific claims about
what those processes are -- that is the role of scientific exploration.
