Dear Kym:

Before supposing any more it might be a good idea to dip into THE
SECRET DOCTRINE.  The question of "god" is discussed from pages
14 to 18  in the 1st volume, and elsewhere ( see the INDEX ) ;
also, on the subject of evolution, which evolution do you mean
physiological, emotional, mental spiritual ?  Each one is
separate, yet interblended in man.  The 2nd volume of the SD
disputes with Darwin rather successfully on the subject of fossil
remains and his theories.  If you wish, look it up and follow the
references from either the Contents or the Index..

Best wishes,        Dallas
