"Whence Involved Evolution?"

"Our high school science teacher told us that matter was born of absolute chance and evolved by incalculable multiplications of accident to the formation of galaxies, planets, fish, mammals, minds, and high school science tests," said Joel Agee in 1989, continuing, "This always seemed to me more fantastical than any of the creation myths science was here to supplant," quoted by John Martin to introduce his article, arguing that "to believe in godless evolution as the producer, author, and artistic director of the universe requires that we believe in a thing more extraordinary than the greatest miracles — the capacity of nothing to turn itself into something" — The Impossible Wonderland.
