Gerald Schroeder's PhD is from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Click here for his documentation on how the credibility of "random chance origin" of life has disappeared scientifically
Augustine on Genesis is under "Presentations", linked here for convenience... Fascinating on "literal" and "days," and far longer than a millenium before Darwin!

The famed atheistic evolutionist, Carl Sagan... points out in Dragons of Eden that there is a
remarkable correlation between the evolutionary development of man and the Genesis account of

For a treatment that may have more merit, in terms of meshing "science" and "literal
