Seems one huge error Neo makes is that he cherrypicks what he considers a miracle, and what he does not - mostly to defend against Scriptural teachings he denies, or that he thinks contradict a natural reality he perfectly understands. WHATEVER God created in the physical realm – whether it came about by evolution or not – requires what only God can do. Now, evolution would have been a “miracle” of God spread out over much time. But most people consider a miracle some instantaneous interruption over how God created things to normally work, along with all of their potential and parameters. But, for God, it matters not which way He does something – instantly, or over a long period, as NONE of what is debated per outcomes in the physical realm would be possible without God first having created them, and without providing precisely for their potential and their parameters. I call ALL such things, the miraculousness of God operating in a physical space He created – with none of it possible without what He's made possible. And God cannot make a thing He doesn't perfectly know of all outcomes of. So the debate over which part of what God has made possible is a completely silly debate.Neo: Remember, if molecules to man evolution is true then creating Adam is unnecessary. But it is a different case when it comes to Christ, because there is no other way Christ could be born except a miracle.
Adam could not have been some random outcome that God did not plan. Because God PERFECTLY knows ALL things, past, present and future. ANYTHING that would or has become a reality, He has ALWAYS perfectly known about it. And with Adam, even if He was created via evolution, God perfectly knew of His existence, HOW He would be created, WHEN, all his life events, etc. He knew this also of all humans that would ever come to live. He also always foreknew that He would come in the form of Jesus to save them, and that they would need saving. This idea that Adam was this random, unplanned creature, or that his existence was not guaranteed, or that God needed to “micromanage” the creation – so absurd. The fact of ANY and ALL potential in initial and subsequent things and processes that would one day develop into whatever outcomes – God always knew about them. And if He didn't want them to develop precisely as they did, then He either wouldn't have created their potential the way He did, or He wouldn't have created them at all.
But make no mistake, HOW God created things, their potential, their sequences, their foreknown outcomes, were ALL perfectly under His control – call that micromanaging, unnecessary, etc. - doesn't matter. An all-powerful, all-knowing God could not have EVER not known of ANYTHING that would eventually become a reality. And if that reality involved His future interactions with humanity, He would have always known about them. Adam was always a certainty with God, as was the fact that Jesus came to die for humanity. The all-knowingness of God totally refutes Neo's assertions. And, of course, Jesus endorses the entirety of the Old Testament as being true, as God's word. Does He not believe that? We're told Jesus repeatedly did miracles to prove Who He was - does Neo believe those? I just don't see why he's hung up over what he considers miracles of God, and what He does not - or what He considers micromanaging, and what should just be considered however God wanted to operate in time - whether instantly or over immense periods - all the same to God, without Whom NO aspect of the physical would ever have been possible, or have had ANY potential.
