The belief that God (the Christian God) used evolution to create life on Earth. This theory says that God designed the natural processes that guide evolution, and endowed Mankind with a soul when it had reached a sufficient level of sentience(This is often called the "Ontological Leap.")more...
Contrary to fears of many Christians, evolutionary creationism is not incompatible with Christianity. It does not preclude the existence of an Adam and Eve, the Fall of Man, or the need for the redemptive power of Jesus Christ. The creation story in Genesis was not intended as a literal account of Earth's origins, but to illustrate the fact that God created the world. And no, the age of the Earth required by evolution does not contradict the "six-day" duration of creation in Genesis. The word "day" could have been code for a long, indeterminate period of time. Assuming Genesis 1-2 was a myth does not make the Bible "errant," because it does not contradict the message onmmunicated by the story-that God is the Creator of the world.
Many Christians who believe in evolutionary creationism also hold beliefs that fit the bill for "Evangelical," i.e. conservative. Notable examples are Asa Gray(Charles Darwin's own correspondent), Francis Collin (head of the Human Genome Project), and even the mighty C.S. Lewis. In short, Christians who oppose evolution need to get over themselves.

White House of Ill-Repute NOUN (huite hows uv il re peut) NOUN. A White House (1600 Pennsylvania Av., Washington D.C.) which is filled with whores like James Guckert and Scott McClellan, who will say anything for money is a house of ill-repute, or whorehouse (see “presstitute”).
"Sit there with all the other presstitutes and suck up phony press releases and talking points? Fuck that. I'd rather be out in the field, or digging through dusty old archives than cover that dog-and-pony show. I don't wanna be a press correspondent in the White House of Ill-Repute."

3. To re-frame from making decisions or completing an action until you know all of the consequences.
