Purpose and design (Evolution)

dhw: Then let me stick rigidly to your terminology and say I prefer any one of those three to the concept of a God who designed every other life form and natural wonder so that it would take a long time for him to produce the only life form he actually wanted to produce,

Parsing this part of your statement: "designed every other life form and natural wonder so that it would take a long time" seems to mean He stopped and played with designs to temporize until He finally got to designing humans. Not my view. I remind you I always point out the evidence of God preferring evolution of all goals: universe, earth, and life. He used an evolutionary process to produce us as His standard operating procedure (SOP) approach.

dhw: and which he could have produced without any difficulty. Since you have agreed that there can be no “clear indisputable answer” and have withdrawn Saturday’s decisive conclusion, do please tell us which of these four hypotheses you now consider most likely.

Of course here is no indisputable answer. It is possible He could have gone directly to creating humans, He might be limited or evolutionary processes are His preference. He is allowed to have preferences, if he wishes. And your theories are possible answers, but not ones I prefer, as explained.
