DAVID: I can't go as far as you do. I suspect He watches over evolution quite closely but takes a hands off approach, and I would especially favor that thought if we could find a speciation inventive mechanism in the genome. That would allow for a variety of complexity and survival competition.

dhw: A “hands off approach” is a far cry from the “full control” you have been advocating for so long. An autonomous inventive mechanism would not just allow for the variety of complexity and survival competition (which I call the higgledy-piggledy bush), but would actually cause it. ...But of course you are right to point out that such a mechanism has not been found. Nor has a 3.8-billion-year-old computer programme. We are hypothesizing.

We are in agreement about possibilities, but I would remind you this all started from single cells who were programmed to do at least enough to live and evolve. See my long entries on information and life which is covered by four sections.
