Purpose and design (Evolution)

DAVID: I think God is pleased with His creations, as I've stated elsewhere. At my level of humanity I fully enjoy all the aspects of life as you describe. God is not at my level and I see his purpose at work. but I'm certain He is not pleased at humans warring, etc.

dhw: What purpose do you “see at work”? The only purpose you have acknowledged is the production of humans. Even in this post, you say he is “simply consciousness/mind” and yet now you are humanizing him to the extent that you are sure he is pleased by some things and not pleased by others. Hallelujah! Maybe you will even come round to the idea that if he is pleased/not pleased, his purpose in creating life (including humans) might actually have been to be pleased, which I would regard as synonymous with enjoyment.

He may well be pleased with the results of his creations, but whether He really is or not in unknowable for us. Why conjecture? It is only an attempt to humanize him.
