DAVID: Our problem is I don't see a dichotomy starting with the position that humans are the goal of evolution as God conducts it.

DHW: I pointed out to you that if God is all-powerful, and can dabble at any time, and his only goal was to create humans, it did not make sense that he would personally design millions of other life forms, lifestyles and natural wonders in order to do so (e.g. the weaverbird’s nest, monarch’s lifestyle, fly’s compound eye). Your response was “Guess what? It doesn’t make sense to me either”, and the only explanation you could come up with was that your God might be limited. I offered you experimentation as a "clear explanation", and you rejected it. You are currently backtracking on the limited God hypothesis because you can’t come up with any limitation you can accept as feasible. And so you are left where you started, with two hypotheses which, put together, don’t make sense to you. That is the dichotomy.

Ok, let's see if we can sort this statetement.

A) God did NOT have to create the endless variety, but he DID need to create sufficient variety to meet the requirements of sustaining a livable ecosystem.

B) The act of making the required resources beautiful, complex, interesting and wondrous is an expression of God's love for his creations.

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
