 Evolution Encyclopedia Article, Information, History and Biography @ NaturalResearch.org
The belief in a telelogical evolution of this sort is known as orthogenesis, and is not supported by the scientific understandings of evolution.

 Creation, Evolution, and Thomas Aquinas
Creation [in such a view] is portrayed as a series of interventions in natural process, and evolutionary natural process is held to be in principle insufficient to bring about major features of the world.
By re-visiting the mediaeval discussion of creation and the natural sciences, especially as found in the thought of Thomas Aquinas, we may be able to resolve a good deal of confusion concerning the relationship between creation and evolution.
Creation is not some distant event; it is the complete causing of the existence of everything that is. Creation, thus, as Aquinas shows, is a subject for metaphysics and theology; it is not a subject for the natural sciences.

 Skeptical Inquirer: 'Teach the controversy'
"Teach the controversy" is now frequently used to describe the idea of teaching evolution's "strengths and weaknesses," or evidence "for and against" evolution, which in practice means misrepresenting the mainstream scientific literature in such a way as to confuse the public in general, and students in particular, about the scientific standing of evolution.
So whether "teach the controversy" is invoked to portray Intelligent Design as scientific or merely to portray evolution as a theory in crisis, the point is the same: to challenge science in the service of a narrow religious agenda.
Aguillard that teaching "creation science" violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, the Institute for Creation Research recommended the same approach: "school boards and teachers should be strongly encouraged at least to stress the scientific evidences and arguments against evolution in their classes...
