Neil D. Broom: "Does Nature Suggest Transcendence?"

This paper argues that biological materialism's claim to have explained the phenomenon of life and its evolutionary development in wholly material terms is unjustified. Fixated as it is on a one-line causal economy, acknowledging only the unfeeling laws of a mindless purposeless material world naturalism presents an absurdly truncated theory of life, one that fails to account for the 'aliveness' of the biological world. This paper argues that right down the evolutionary line to primordial 'ground zero' one is confronted with a dimension that relates to something akin to the activity of Mind, and that this is consistent with a model of an evolving creation that doesn't shrink form placing the essential activity of God right at the very core of the organic process.
