Creation and selection

You can’t create and evaluate at the same time. Even in Genesis, evaluation comes after creation.

And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the cattle according to their kinds, and everything that creeps along the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:25

If the Creator could follow up an act of creation by observing ‘that it was good,’ then it must have been possible for it to be not good. (Who knows how many drafts of the universe God might have produced and rejected?)

The evolutionary process is no different: ‘speciation, like other creative work, involves a variety-generating process followed by a choosing mechanism’ (Odum 2007, 240).
