    iow, those who believe that God designed a system
    Demoting God to a "designer" is not part of theistic evolution. He's the Creator.

    that relies on random mutations that more often lead to death or disease than to improvement of the organism
    God, of course, recognized the fact, and made the world so that natural selection can handle that.

    And as you might know mutations generally don't do much of anything. But a few are useful and that's how fitness increases.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Well, since TOL advocates open theism and MAD, the "Theology Online Mount Rushmore" would be of the following men:

    Richard Rice - Open theist, and inventor of the term "open theism"

    John Nelson Darby - Inventor of dispensationalism

    E. W. Bullinger - Inventor of Mid-Acts-Dispensationalism

    Bob Enyart - Took the teachings of the above three men, and joined them all together.

    and, as I said, in more cases than lead to improvement, mutations lead to disease and death.

    Typical of you to ignore that.

    And yet, in almost all populations, the process leads to an increase in fitness. This is like the socialist's complain that most businesses fail within a year of so of being started.

    This might seem like a bad thing, but of course, prosperity through free enterprise is beneficial to society. It might seem puzzling at first, but if you think about it for a while, I'm sure you'll see what the point is.

    That's right! The whole thing will embarrass its self.

    Votings so wrong, it insures the wrong person to get into respect. someone way worthy gets axed like Jesus. I wouldn't.t come if I was him, the same thing would happen...

    I am puzzled why you haven't made any nominations for who should be on Mt. InTOLerance?

    the point, of course, is that your silly idea of God is one who has created a system that more often leads to death and disease than improvement.


    Go ahead - continue positing a God who is no more effective than man

    He did create it. You're trying to hold God to man's standards. But death and disease are also His creation:

    Isaiahs 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness, I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord that do all these things.

    (notice that by "evil" He means things like death and disease, not sin)

    Go ahead - continue positing a God who is no more effective than man
    That is clearly more than any man can do. You're just not happy with the way He does things.

    Keep this up and I am going to nominate you for Mt. Derail.

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    If they're to be chiseled in stone, I think in all due humility we'd probably defer to other Christian greats like Pope John Paul II, Martin Luther, John Calvin, and maybe Joni Eareckson Tada or Harriet Tubman, just to keep us 'relevant'.
