TONY: Sounds a lot like game design to me. The field of biology has benefitted tremendously from the inclusion of engineering as a discipline, […] Besides, those who already view life as being engineered and designed don't have to wade through all the mental hurdles needed to rationalize Darwinism.

DHW: How about combining design and Darwinism? Your God may have designed a mechanism that would enable the first living cells to combine in an ever increasing variety of ways, thereby evolving from the comparatively simple to the exceedingly complex?


Tony: Why not from prototypes? From a design standpoint, prototypes make more sense and are more in agreement with the fossil record.

You may not have seen my comment about God setting up patterns to follow to make the conduct of managing evolution an simpler task. Is there a theistic thought or theory about prototypes?
