God and evolution (Evolution)

DAVID: Tony and I are very close together. You don't interpret Tony as I do. God's evolutionary processes require a series of preparations for the arrival of humans as his statements point out. Our differences come from his Biblical interpretations.

dhw: Why have you omitted Tony’s direct dismissal of your dogmatic anthropocentrism?

TONY: Humans, as the prime goal of all creation, or even of evolution, is truly just silliness, even according to science which claims everything is still evolving. If that were true, we must be in one of those periods of punctuated equilibrium.

dhw: Tony will have to tell us himself how, if he agrees with you, your God’s personal design of the weaverbird’s nest, the monarch’s lifestyle and the fly’s compound eye constituted preparation for his "sole goal", the production of humans.

Note Tony's reply. Yes Tony and I disagree about the centrality of humans. We are allowed to.
