God is both pragmatic and prescient

“Gertie” collapsed in 1940. I selected the replacement for “Galloping Gertie,” the 1950s-bridge, as an example of the need for both stability and elasticity. Darwin’s finches have been shown to “evolve” and “evolve back.” Such “oscillations” help illustrate my thesis that God is both pragmatic and prescient in His construction of the Natural Order. Species are frequently in flux, but genera typically endure, due to intrinsic constraints and ecological elasticity. (Grant, P.R. and Grant, B.R. (2005), “Darwin’s finches.” _Current Biology_ Vol 15 No 16, R614)
