“Any theory that leaves out God as a personal, purposeful Being, and accepts chance as a first cause, cannot be accepted by Latter-day Saints… That man and the whole of creation came by chance is unthinkable. It is equally unthinkable that if man came into being by the will and power of God, the divine creative power is limited to one process dimly sensed by mortal man.”

John A. Widtsoe, Evidences and Reconciliations (Salt Lake City, UT: Bookcraft, 1960), 163-164.
