Douglas Axe, author of Undeniable, debates theistic evolutionist and biochemist Keith Fox debate the question at Unbelievable (radio). Fox is Director of the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, Cambridge.
The comments are fascinating insofar as they reveal the obvious superiority of fully naturalist atheism to “theistic evolution.” If we can see no intelligence behind or within nature, that’s not only because there probably isn’t any but because, as the naturalist is happy to point out, we evolved so as not to be able to understand reality anyway. There is no intelligence in us either. There is only power and he, as it happens, exercises it.
Of course, the naturalist succeeds in persuading his pop science media-driven crowd by ignoring vast masses of evidence for design in nature in favour of speculations: dismissing evident fine-tuning in favor of an evidence-free multiverse, for example.
In the conflict for the soul of science, the theistic evolutionist stands haplessly, waving a banner, on the sidelines: “Yes, God did it but no, there is no evidence. You shouldn’t expect any.”
Or, as an iconoclastic rabbi once put it much more succinctly, God is so great that he need not exist. (Except in our heads – which is precisely the naturalist’s point, right?)

But that is just the trouble. A smart whelp may soon know more than the Darwinist prof. One must apply the brakes.
