Logic and evolution: Plantinga tries theistic evolution (Introduction)

DAVID: And as this critical essay shows he fails, because he comes from a supernatural standpoint as a leading Christian theologian:

David’s comment: Plantinga's approach to use Darwin theory (chance mutation and natural selection) and apply religious concepts cannot succeed. This very long review of his argument makes that clear. This is why my approach is very different: no religious precepts and I don't think most of Darwin's theory is correct as I have shown previously. We have no valid scientific description of how speciation occurs. I suggest reading the entire essay which makes excellent points reflecting dhw's point of view.

Since you and I both reject Darwin’s random mutations, we really don’t need Plantinga’s equivocations or this long-winded rebuttal of his argument. It is perfectly possible to reconcile theism and evolution in the various ways you and I have spent years arguing about, and in any case Darwin himself was at pains to point out that his theory was not atheistic.
