A GENERIC SPIRITUAL CREATION A generic spiritual creation provides a solution to the conflict between predestination and free agency, yet it preserves the individual as the distinct entity that coexisted with God in the pre-mortal life. A generic spirit is not intended for any specific organism, but it can be placed in any one of many different life forms of approximately the same degree of complexity. Although God is the creator of generic spirits, geneticists may play an important role in controlling and designing the mortal bodies that house these spirits. The generic spirit model is also compatible with organic evolution as the mechanism by which God populated the earth.
