What about the theory of evolution?

QAWhat about the theory of evolution?The Darwinian theory of random mutation and natural selection still depends on some kind of pre-existing order. Evolution may describe a process of creation, and scientists may successfully use its principles to manipulate or clone creatures. It cannot, however, explain away the first cause. Even if the theory of evolution is correct, it still does not rule out a creator:
Creation is an act—the act of an agent, in this case God. Evolution is a process. A description of the processes of creation is not a logical alternative to the act of creation, as Darwin himself realized…. Nobody would claim that understanding the mechanisms of an invention ruled out an inventor. Yet a similar claim is made that understanding the mechanisms of creation rules out a Creator. (Michael Poole, A Guide to Science and Belief [Oxford, Lion Publishing, 1990], 110)
