Kabbalah and evolution—Madonna not withstanding


"The theory of evolution accords with the secrets of Kabbalah better than any other theory. Evolution follows a path of ascent and thus provides the world with a basis for optimism. How can one despair, seeing that everything evolves and ascends? When we penetrate the inner nature of evolution, we find divinity illuminated in perfect clarity. Ein Sof [the essence or light of God] generates, actualizes potential infinity."
From The Essential Kabbalah; the heart of Jewish mysticism, by Daniel C. Matt.
