Evolutionary theory cannot be falsified (Introduction)

TONY: I prefer to infer his characteristics by the examination of his creation. A preference which is supported in the biblewhen it stays that all that can be known the creator can be learned by studying his creation
DAVID: Exactly as I do it, and the Quran agrees.

dhw: Me too, if I put on my theist’s hat. And what do I see when I examine his creation? Wondrous beauty, love, compassion, inventiveness, mixed with appalling ugliness, selfishness, cruelty, suffering.

Two further observations:
David, I thought you prided yourself on not inferring ANY of your God’s characteristics, as that means humanizing him.
Tony, in anticipation of a possible reply from you: (a) my second list existed long before humans came on the scene, and (b) I am not objecting to the mixture here but am merely inferring your God’s possible characteristics by examining his creation.

If you read my comment, it clearly said 'to each his own': "Each of us can then shape the designer's characteristics as each of us wills". The word characteristics can obviously mean no human aspects.
