God and evolution (Evolution)

dhw: Please explain how ‘limited’ still remains possible for you, while at the same time it is “totally off reservation” because “...any power that can produce a fine-tuned universe can then see to the creation of humans without difficulty.”

The 'off the reservation' comment was to reject your weird idea that God had to experiment to figure out how to make humans. Never! Please review that entry. You have totally distorted the exchange.

DAVID: Just the opposite! Per Tony, the 'delay' was simply taking time to prepare fro humans who have dominion over all.

dhw: An amazingly swift conversion. You began this post by saying “God may have used the time for preparation, and not be at all limited, but ‘limited’ still remains possible for me. I am still either/or, but inclined to feel more attracted to Tony’s opinion.” By the end you are fully committed to hypothesis 2: an unlimited God who inexplicably designed the weaverbird’s nest etc. etc. because he wanted to produce humans (for which your clear explanation is that he wanted to produce humans). See my reply to Tony on the subject of his opinion.

I find Tony's explanation perfectly reasonable, but I am still either/or. Remember 'delay' is our human impression, not necessarily God's.
