Sacrifice: bringing evolution and religion together?

Read the article here, but the author concludes,

That’s the moral/theological speculation upon which Coakley is working. She’s also motivated by a belief that the philosophy of religion must engage more directly with evolutionary theory, and not just fall back on the “compossibility” option – that is, arguing that a believer can accept evolution as there need be no logical inconsistency between it and their faith, though it is as if evolution and faith operate in parallel worlds. Coakley’s hope is that co-operation and sacrifice will bring evolution and theology more clearly into mutual dialogue – on the one hand challenging the selfish interpretation of natural selection; on the other opening up new vistas within evolution.
