webdog made this claim in another thread. I didn't want to hijack the thread so I'll start this one. Oxymoron. This is like a christian atheist. </font>[/QUOTE]I would agree that for many Christians, theistic evolutionist is an oxymoron because their understanding of evolution is patently atheistic. Primarily this view comes from YEC definitions of evolution who approach evolution with the pre-understanding that it is wrong. However, the scientific community and those responsible for defining, researching and promoting evolution would not describe evolution as atheistic.
