  Evolutionary creationism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Theistic evolution, or the less common term, Evolutionary Creationism, is the general belief that some or all classical religious teachings about God and creation are compatible with some or all of the scientific theory of evolution.
Evolution contradicts a literal interpretation of Genesis; however, according to the two oldest branches of Christianity (Orthodoxy and Catholicism; and most Protestant Churches, these days), Biblical Literalism is not mandatory.
One of the main criticisms of evolution by Muslims is their assertion that it was created by and supports atheism, and so it is argued that it should be rejected (see for example, Why Darwinism is Incompatible With the Qur'an).

 Creative Evolution
Creative was an early entry in the field of CNC for the skilled trades of complex 3-D contouring for molds, dies and prototype models.
Creative's development of new methods for training mold, die, and pattern makers in how to use control capabilities was pivotal to profitability for early entrants to the market of CNC for 3-D, as well as simultaneous 4 and 5 axis.
Creative Evolution machines are also sold in Asia, Europe, and Australia under the trade names "Strathclyde" and "Fine Tech." It is also available as a retrofit to enhance productivity on most all popular CNC mills and machining centers.

 Eros and Agape in Creative Evolution: A Peircean Insight
In general, skepticism about a complete explanation of creativity is based on the notion that a creative act issues in an outcome that is new in kind, which was unpredictable, and which has a definite character that is neither reducible to the sum of its elements nor exhaustively traceable to its antecedents.
These two points, that the creative process includes the lure of a telos and that the agent of creativity is responsible for its activity, serve as a basis for the suggestion that self-determination in creative processes can be conceived in terms of two notions familiar to the philosophical tradition: eros and agape.
Agapastic evolution is open to free development, neither heedlessly nor blindly, but "by the immediate attraction for the idea itself, whose nature is divined before the mind possesses it, by the power of sympathy, that is, by virtue of the continuity of mind" (6.307).

 Creative immortality
The theory of evolution is the cornerstone of the contemporary scientific worldview.
Evolution is a constant emergence of higher and higher levels of cybernetic control.
Evolution proceeds by metasystem transitions, in which a number of pre viously uncoordinated systems become controled by a metasystem, which thereby vastly expands the effects of its free choices.

 [No title]
Rooted in his early rehabilitation of Henri Bergson's 1907 Creative Evolution, Deleuze's heretical "evolutionism" draws widely and irreverently on the advances of recent biology; and yet, for all its gesturing toward biological theory, it remains distinctly philosophical in flavor.
The evolution of life really continues, as we have shown, an initial impulsion: this impulsion, which has determined the development of the chlorophyllian function in the plant and of the sensori-motor system in the animal, brings life to more and more efficient acts by the fabrication and use of more and more powerful explosives.
Creative involution is thus ultimately synonymous with a sort of cosmic expressionism through which Nature ceaselessly generates differentiation by cutting across any and all boundaries.

 Henri Bergson: Creative Evolution: Chapter 2: The Divergent Directions of the Evolution of Life -- Torpor, ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-06-18)
So our study of the evolution movement will have to unravel a certain number of divergent directions, and to appreciate the importance of what has happened along each of them-in a word, to determine the nature of the dissociated tendencies and estimate their relative proportion.
Evolution will thus prove to be something entirely different from a series of adaptations to circumstances, as mechanism claims; entirely different also from the realization of a plan of the whole, as maintained by the doctrine of finality.
If, on the contrary, evolution is a creation unceasingly renewed, it creates, as it goes on, not only the forms of life, but the ideas that will enable the intellect to understand it, the terms which will serve to express it.

 J. Alexander Gunn - Bergson And His Philosophy
Evolution is now a household word, but the actual study of evolutionary process has been the work of comparatively few.
Evolution is not only a movement forward; in many cases we observe a marking-time, and still more often a deviation or turning back.
If the evolution of life had been opposed by different accidents en route, if the current of life had been divided otherwise, we should have been, in physique and in morality, very different from what we are.

 Keith Devens - Weblog: Gallup: Third of Americans Say Evidence Has Supported Darwin's Evolution Theory - November 19, ...
Since the theory of evolution is integral to the development of the annual shot (and even the premise that you would need one, for example http://www.jphpk.gov.my/Agronomi/bird_flu13.htm), your beliefs should require that you eschew the shot - even in years that it is available.
Creative evolution has never been observed, is not testable, is not repeatable, you can't make predictions of what creative evolution will produce, etc. It's not a scientific hypothesis, but a theory of origins.
I'd say that creative evolution is INDEED an act of faith, but it is not comparable to the act of faith that is needed in order to believe in a creative God.

 Shaw and Creative Evolution
Oxford, U.K. To my knowledge, the term "Creative Evolution" was first used by the British dramatist and critic George Bernard Shaw as the name for his own philosophy.
He realised that evolution solved the religious dilemma of evil (when progress is a matter of trial and error, the world must be full of its failures).
Firstly, Darwinism cannot be criticised as a creed because it is not a creed and was never intended as such; rather it is a scientific theory of the origin of species.

I say this mainly because at any given time in the evolution of our descriptions of evolution, life, or the universe, we have modeled only aspects of the phenomenon, and we must leave room for those aspects or dimensions we are not yet seeing.

 Creative Evolution
Suddenly it was okay to teach evolution in the classrooms.
The key of course, is that the traditional theory of evolution is going to have one heck of a time explaining this dimunation of the species in terms of the “survival of the fittest” or some other such concoction.
The end result is that Creative Evolution includes both evolutionary tendencies and the potential for multiple occasions of interventions by an intelligence (smart, by design, or the contraries) of each and every species on the planet.

His Creative Evolution (1907) and Matter and Memory (1896) attempted to integrate the findings of biological science with a theory of consciousness.
