Chapter 1: Creation
Darwinism is a theory that dissolves transcendence, essentialism and necessity.
1.1 Three Worldviews – We can frame a Darwinian worldview in terms of its tensions and contradictions with two other worldviews that are prominent within western culture.
1.2 Natural Selection – All design and meaning, without exception, is some kind of replicating physical pattern upon which entropy acts in the form of natural selection.
1.3 History – The history of evolution is an illustration of non-essentialism, contingency and divergence.
1.4 Wisdom – The process of natural selection is a kind of decentralized and unconscious intelligence.
1.5 Workmanship – The objections to Darwin are primarily moral and not trivial.
