The fact that God has chosen to remain hidden to a significant extent can, and should, be usefully employed by Christians to respond to the frequently-heard claim that evolutionary biology strongly supports atheism. If God must remain hidden, then one should expect Him to create gradually. Topics that must be addressed include the extent of the hiddenness that is required, biological versions of the philosophical “problem of evil,” and plausible reasons God may have for remaining so hidden.
