Convoluted human evolution: We are in control (Introduction)

DAVID’s comment: On the basis of this article I think evolution is in our hands and is over unless we engineer more of it.

dhw: We have no idea what the universe will throw at us in the next few thousand million years, so I would be very hesitant to assume that evolution is over, but as long as our planet continues to sustain life forms as we know them, I would have to agree. Presumably this is where theists might wonder what their God is up to. Simply watching the spectacle? Sloped off to watch something else? Poised to do an almighty dabble? What do you reckon?

DAVID: There are a group of Christian believers and this includes some Orthodox Jews in this country who feel God guides humans and His preferred country is the USA. There are books on the subject. That certainly suggests He may be following closely. The arrival, unexpectedly, of Trump may be a sign.

dhw: I’m sure you are not alone in believing that your God guides humans, and I’m sure there are quite a lot of Americans who think the USA is God’s chosen country, and if some of them have written books as well, then gosh folks it must be true, mustn’t it? Please tell us what they think the unexpected arrival of Trump is a sign of.

I believe the evangelicals are convinced God stepped in. I live in their neighborhood in Texas.
