  • God made the Big-bang
  • God created Earth
  • God created creatures on Earth
  • God created laws of nature including biology and evolution
  • There are creatures created by God: Adam, Eva, other humans, …
  • There are creatures created by evolution

Of which philosophy is this when these points stick together?

    Sounds a lot like creation science en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creation_science. But I am not sure if that qualifies as "philosophy" ... or science, really. – Einer Jun 26 '17 at 8:59

    Sounds a bit like a "God of the gaps" argument – Alex Jun 26 '17 at 9:03

    There's some confusion here - you cannot say that God created the laws of nature (biology/evolution) and the cosmic inflation (big bang) while also saying that God created the earth, creatures on the earth, etc. If you do then you are equivocating on the word 'create'. You could say God is responsible, as in, ultimately responsible, I suppose, but this is different from the common sense usage of 'create'. – Phlegon_of_Tralles Jun 26 '17 at 13:23
  • yeah, it does sound like Scientific Creationism – datdinhquoc Jun 27 '17 at 3:07

If you stop before the last point, it's called progressive evolution:

Progressive creationism (see for comparison intelligent design) is the pseudoscientific belief that God created new forms of life gradually over a period of hundreds of millions of years. - wikipedia

If you include the last point, it's the more generic theistic evolution:

Theistic evolution, theistic evolutionism, or evolutionary creationism are views that regard religious teachings about God as compatible with modern scientific understanding about biological evolution. - wikipedia


As an aside: although sometimes lumped together with what's called creation science, theistic evolution (as well as progressive evolution) are derided by proponents of both naturalistic evolution and what's known as young-earth creation:

  • tks, it sounds the most like scientific creationism – datdinhquoc Jun 27 '17 at 3:19

    @johnlowvale The issue with using the term 'scientific' to describe the position is that it doesn't help to distinguish itself from The the other positions. Evolutionists deem evolution to be scientific, and the better-informed 6-day Creationists defend that position on scientific grounds as well. Each end considers itself the foundation of modern science, historically-speaking. – Lawrence Jun 27 '17 at 11:12
