    The bible is filled with "God created" yet modern cosmology and evolution theory points to no godly intervention. How do I believe in the Bible's message inspite of this?

    Most Christian and Jewish theologians tend to feel that the creation accounts are probably allegory. There is nothing intrinsic to the basic ToE that eliminates the possibility of divine creation.

    Hello. One way to reconcile this is to reconsider your definition of "create". For me this makes a lot of sense:

    Process Theology

    The writing of Whitehead is dense,not easy reading, but worth the effort IMHO.

    Peace
