dhw:But when your own views are challenged, and you are questioned about the gaps - even within a theistic context - you have no idea, or you can't read God's mind. At the risk of trying your patience, let me ask the following, just for clarification:

1) You have stressed over and over again that humans are “different in kind” from all other organisms, including apes, so do you or do you not believe that humans and apes had a common ancestor (= evolution) or that God dabbled (= separate creation)?
2) Do you believe the other three groups were also “different in kind”?
3) You see the existence of four groups as “several attempts, with one winning.” I'm intrigued by “attempts”. Please explain: by whom and in order to do what?

1) I still accept evolution guided by God. I think a common ancestor.

2) No, they didn't develop the powerful intellect we have.

3) Evolutionary attempts at advancement produced different types of Homo under God's guidance all probably branched from H. erectus. I don't know why, except sapiens were the target, and that was achieved.
