Evolutionary theory cannot be falsified (Introduction)

DAVID: I do not understand why you cannot accept my position that I may attribute human characteristics to God in my position of faith, but intellectually admit that I cannot know those characteristics are factually real.

Of course I accept that position. As I keep repeating ad nauseam, nobody KNOWS if their beliefs are factually real, whether that relates to the existence of God, the purpose of God, or the nature of God. What I cannot accept is your insistence that (a) God had only one purpose (to create humans), and (b) everything else (e.g. the weaverbird's nest) is related to that purpose. Nor can I accept your refusal – despite your admission that the dichotomy between these two hypotheses leaves you without a “clear explanation” – to even consider any other possible purpose for his creation of life on the grounds that we mustn’t humanize your God (though you actually believe he has characteristics in common with humans) or that we cannot KNOW the truth.
