But, that is not the crux of the points being made... It is
_heritability_ and whatever creator belief system or agnosticism
you choose that we're asking for, not the new alternate "no
heritability" ("change through time") and whatever belief system,
which for some of us means booting evolution out the door in
favor of an exclusive alternative that allows for other notions
than (heritable) evolution.

The remainer of your comment to Robin reiterates the focus on
"evolution" (not "change through time"). So, yes, couple
evolution with whatever you wish, but some of us see the change
from "evolution" to "change through time" as camel's nose of
"mutual exclusiveness", and not the relationships between
evolution and devine intervention belief systems per se.
