The Hump goes providential

With the number of posts on The Hump now exceeding 900 I’ve added a “random post” facility in the sidebar to keep you amused for hours.

I must note, given one of our perennial subjects, that “random” here means “epistemologically random”, not “ontologically random”. The widget is in fact governed by some kind of clever algorithm that simulates randomness: the posts actually appear according to deterministic criteria. That doesn’t preclude them, of course, being providentially tailored to your particular interest and needs.

Isn’t theology wonderful?

    As I am often seen doing, I once explained how providence, God’s direct action, design and creation are all compatible with theistic evolution. In response, tour asked me, “If what you are saying is true, what exactly is the difference between progressive creation, aren’t they just the same thing?” I laughed, and said it came down to the word “evolution” and whether or not we liked it, and if we wanted to be warring with mainstream science. We’ll see how the common ground event goes. It would be great for him to go on the record with an answer to your question.

      I’ll reply to this on the previous post, to keep the “James Tour” brand intact, for the sake of future visitors. I’d have moved your comment, but lack the ability for the horizontal transfer of information.
