I cannot speak for anyone else but myself, but I simply take what is stated in the Bible and other sources to see the excluded middle. If you can
find the higher axiom, and it unifies both sides of the mirror of debate, you have found the answer. Here it is.
Involution and Evolution
Higher truth always unifies paradox and shows both sides to be true. The thing to remember is this: Evolution is not a cause, but a result. Design
and programming of Word is the cause.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8
He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world
did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed
in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but
born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of
grace and truth.
So then, how do we rectify this understanding of Word (information) being the primary means of producing the image of reality? We recognize the one
that is within us all doing the change.
1 Colossians 1: 15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven
and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He
is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

As many of us know, the denial of evolution is a prevailing theme in religion. Many devout theists believe that the Earth was created in its current
state, with all creatures created in their existing forms, unable to adapt to changes in their environment. Creationists believe that creatures were
specifically designed for the environment they inhabit.
I do not deny the possibility of a creative intelligence which formed the universe, however to say that this deity is incapable of creating organisms
which have the ability to adapt to their environment, even changing their form entirely over the course of millions of years, is an insult. You are
placing limits on a being which is supposed to be all powerful.
If this being is truly all powerful and intelligent, would it not make more sense that it would create creatures that are dynamic and adaptive, rather
than fixed in a particular form?
