On the Soul and the Resurrection continues, as St. Macrina argues for evolution as the divine plan.
Well, okay, not really. But you could pretty clearly use this kind of recapitulation argument that way. And why not? It would be really amusing to watch Dawkins’ head explode if you did argue from the divine. St. Mac didn’t even know about all the little plants and bacteria and virii that live inside us and the various kinds of cell, all of which would improve her argument that humanity encapsulates bits of all the orders of Creation, and thus had to come along later than their beginnings. 🙂 Evolution as an important part of God’s toolbox would seem to fit very naturally into this view.
