For many persons, evolution is seen, following Darwin, as a very gradual

process of evolutionary change which is consistent with atheistic materialism. I, on the

other hand, following Bergson, argue that evolution involves planned change from

outside of space-time, involving God and metaphysics. Bergson, in his work on

evolution, argued that evolution could only take place with rapid, complex, changes in

biological reality, not with gradual incremental changes.

Of course, when you think about it, the idea that people were created by God, in

Genesis in the Bible, could be seen as evidence that evolution takes place very rapidly,

with causation from outside of space-time by God and metaphysics. The question, is,

however, how can we get to this notion of evolution and still stay in the realm of science.

My response is that evolution takes place using Quantum Physics and Quantum Change.

Recall that Quantum Physics is based upon the scientific idea that the Quantum

Field exists outside of space-time. The Quantum Field exists on a subatomic level, but

can certainly produce changes on the atomic, molecular, or even biological levels. There

is no reason, logically, to think that if you can change the subatomic makeup of an atom,

that you cannot change the atom itself. And, if you can change an atom, there is no

reason to think that you could not change a molecule. And, if you can change a

molecule, there is no reason to think that you could not change a biological cell. Thus, it
is possible that evolutionary meaning on the Quantum level, which very well might

involve God, and certainly metaphysics, could produce large and sudden evolutionary

changes, even to the extent of producing a whole new species of animal, or even human

beings, as if, ex nihilo, out of nothingness, but really out of the Quantum Field. Thus,

there really is no contradiction between the idea of theistic evolution, or creation of

human beings by God in the Bible, and the notion of scientific evolution, in general.
