ABSTRACT
The author proposes a framework for debate over the respective merits of the theory of biological evolution and creation. He argues that Darwinian science does not contradict the Bible but knows of a mechanism that transformed single-celled microorganism into species of plants and animals. He applies the term courageous to those in the intelligent design movement who pursue what they believe to be the truth. He also points out the confusion between evolution and adaptation.
