Evolution, survival and adaptation (Evolution)

DAVID: Of course interested, but in His own way, not humanized.

dhw: So he creates a show and watches it with interest. I’ll settle for that and leave you to imagine what sort of watching is different from human watching, and what sort of interest is different from human interest.

DAVID: It is obvious I do not know, and do not try because He is a personality like none other.

dhw: How do you know he is a personality like none other? How do you know that his way of watching the show and his interest in it is not precisely the same as our way of watching and being interested? If, as some folk believe, he made us in his image, then it stands to reason that we reflect his image. You have even argued that our consciousness is a piece of his consciousness, which returns to him when we die. So how do you know that a piece of his consciousness is unlike his consciousness?

DAVID: As to his personality I'm quoting Adler, whose teachings I follow. As for consciousness, the basic mechanism may be the same but the personal thought process different. We may well use it differently.

So how do you and your teacher Adler know your God is a personality like none other and indulges in a kind of watching and interest that is different from ours?
