From The Gutless Pacifist
Evolution and redemptive violence
A lot to chew on here

No particular idea of how God created the universe was instilled into me at any age, so thankfully I was never married to any one view.
A punto.

...the real world is even more interesting than anything some nutter with just enough knowledge to be dangerous can invent.
Words to live by.

To try to critique this in a Catholic way I’d say that it’s true that Christianity opposes an evil order and would instead prefer an apparent chaos that’s good, but would qualify all that by saying that order in itself is good. God is orderly in his way and doesn’t contradict himself. An apparent order that is evil isn’t from him, while the seeming chaos may have his order in it only we can’t see that while it’s happening.
