You can search for middle ground in the fray of the arguments, and
inhabit with your comfortable beliefs, but one fact remains. The
numerous hypotheses of creation by the hand of God are
UNTESTABLE, and therefore UNSCIENTIFIC. If you believe in
the beauty and simplicity of the scientific method as a model that
guides your life and your pursuit of the truth outside the laboratory,
then you will quickly find yourself among the agnostics.
So, find your middle ground. Feed your "inquiries". But realize that
your hybrid philosophy of the universal creation is only partially
based on scientific thinking. The other part is pure revelation.
