The Theory of Teleological Evolution
I thought folks might find this theory interesting, but some extremely hostile antiheist edited the first sentence on Wikipedia's entry on intelligent design to say it is pseudoscience, and deleted the sections on Plato, Aristotle, and Cicero from its top so it starts with Paley instead. Fascists have been well known for distorting the truth to make itself seem the only one, which goes all the way back to Mussolini trying to replace the Georgain calendar to one with his election to Presidency as the origin of all time.
I made a vast misjudgment of the extent of post-truth prejudice, which goes through every effort to channel free thought into its own paradigm when not ridiculing others. Civilization has taken giant leaps backward in the past, and it's happening again. One is NOT permitted to consider, "If order implies an agent, what have we learned about the the extent of the order since Plato and Aristotle?" The more I say, the more notions of intelligent design will be victimized. Thankfully, being retired, I have an alternative. I can just delete my seven years of work on the subject. Truth can go underground when it needs to. No problemo ;D
The Banned Theory
If a Creator used evolution as a tool, then TTE deduces:
- As per Schrodineger, the Earth's location at the entropic center of the known universe is significant. The Earth's Euclidean location in space is a mere artifact of the creation process.
- As per Engels, dialectical materialism is a natural process that extends biological evolution into political evolution.
- Physical conditions, species competition, heriditary differences, and political systems are intrinsically unfair. Therefore the Creator is not concerned with absolute justice, but in learning what we do with what we have; in particular, our resolution of the conflict between compassion and justice.
- Metaphysicians have been unable to define goodness in absolute terms, so there is no reason to believe that a Creator can either. Hence the reason for our existence could be to define and practice goodness ourselves, as well we can, producing a new consequentialist deontology that bridges Hume's guillotine.
The prolog presented TTE as an integrative scientific theory combining biocosmology, biological evolution, metaphysics, and historical materialism. The next chapter fully described how TTE benefitted from a scientific approach referring to Popper, Thaggard, Feyerabend, Bokulich, Heitenan, Putnam, and Piggliucci. It also contained a neo-Wittgensteinain interpretation of Schopehauer's theory of nature, followed by a dialectic on the evolving conflict between natural law, secular law, and Divine Law over the last 2,800 years in the West, East, Middle East, and Far East.

As I say, Im retired. I have no need to listen to such much raw, irrational hatred the proposal caused. The text is deleted.
