"I am no expert on the biology but on general principles we can say that the "movie" of evolution would be completely different if it were run again (a la Gould's "Wonderful Life" analogy) since we in fact only get to watch one showing of it."

We are assuming humans are the "end-game." What if biological evolution isn't done yet- what if we are like monkeys compared to the next creature which may (or is) emerging? And what about humans creating their own evolution with modern science- directing the human genome by writing into it once it is more fully understood?

Once scientists can write DNA, will Christians be the first in line trying to hold back scientific advancement because we are "made in God's image?"
