Kant and the metaphysics of ‘evolution’

Humanity has put a man on the moon but so far human culture is apparently too primitive to deal with the question of evolution…it must be said. The whole issue is stuck between two ideas that don’t work: the idea of chance evolution by natural selection is simply idiocy, not science, and the ideas of creationist action have been vitiated by the poor quality theologies of monotheism.
We cited Kant and it is important to recall his warnings about metaphysics: the evolution debates impinge on the metaphysical and the result is the permanent ambiguity of the whole range of questions.
