What it does is what it Is

1.Genetic evolution is deterministic and creative.
2. The experience of genetic evolution translates into myth.
3. A prevalent myth from experience of genetic evolution is the existence of God.

Depends on what you mean by "deterministic". Are all genes and their interaction with other genes wholly determined by immutable laws of matter? Is the human brain no exception? If so, then "creativity" is no less a necessary/inherent component of what could only ever possibly be.

Given the manner in which "I" have come to understand a "determined universe", the translation itself is but another necessary/inherent manifestation of nature evolving over time and space only as it ever can.

Same thing. Gods exists because human brains exist to "create" them because human brains could not not have created them going back to whatever is "behind" the existence of matter/energy itself.

Call that "God" if you will. After all, in a wholly determined universe, it's not like you ever really had an actual autonomous choice not to.

4. Myths of evolutionary experience provide survival for the organism by furnishing an accurate recognition of the internal and external sameness of matter. We eat what we are composed of.
5. There is no internal need devoid of an external source for meeting that need.
6. The need for existence of a God is satisfied by the personal nature of a creative and deterministic Force. There is a spiritual hunger.

Iamb,
By deterministic I'm referring to the way stem cells become organs or fertilized eggs become organisms. The evolution is deterministic; the outcome is creative.

7. As we evolve our concept of, and experience of God also evolves.

Who, either theist or atheist, has not felt a divine sense of awe while being in an awesome natural environment? A felt sense of wholeness by belonging.

The three experiences of Dasein, the human trinity, are being, becoming and belonging, Evolving by our becoming, our experience of belonging provides a sense of ethics that gives meaning for human existence.

We're evolving to be moral in an ecosystem of interdependent parts--a plenitude.

Yes, that evolution come myth accesses the metaphor of various re-cognition of the inner core of faith. Absolutely as IT is relatively.
