BRAVO!! I completely agree, and endorse Graham's efforts to remind us that we (the current civilisation) are not neccessarily 'IT', the top of development. I think he remarked that we seem to be a species with a collective amnesia about our distant past--we keep assuming that we already know all (or most) everything important.

But at the core of my original question was whether evolution and intervention ('creation') were mutually exclusive, competing concepts, as their partisan advocates frequently indicate. I think the consensus is that they do not exclude one another. While accidental mutation is a factor in evolving modified, or, eventually, new species (mind you, after several mutations/modifications, you will arrive at a new species), this does not mean that ALL such changes in the past were 'accidental'.

It seems to have stimulated a fairly good debate, and that was the intent.
I strongly advocate an open minded approach, whether one is primarily religious in outlook, or scientific.
