The Great Turn Around
I do not think that evolution is blind, although for most intents and purposes it looks that way because evolution wanders around and bumps its head against brick walls and goes down blind alleys. In this I depart from most scientists, including one of the best, Raymond Cattell.
A sacred instinct, a sacred erg, activates material life which is then shaped by evolution. This sacred instinct is called the Spirit-Will, or more formerly, the Spirit-Will-To-Godhood, and this activation helps explain the path of material evolution from the simple to the complex as the Spirit-Will seeks the highest evolution possible, which is Godhood.
Affirming the sacred instinct of Spirit-Will leads to the Great Turn Around of the Twofold Path in the Evolutionary Christian Church. In the great religions, the Involutionary Inward Path turned the material into the spiritual, whereas the Evolutionary Outward Path turns the spiritual into the material. The virtual God, or Father Within, of the Inward Path of Christianity, and the great religions, is reached by evolving to the actual Godhood of the Evolutionary Outward Path. The spiritual and material can meet here, religion and science can meet here, traditional religion and future religion can meet here.
