Purpose and design (Evolution)

DAVID: Yes, most anything is conceivably possible, but I strongly feel God is more purposeful than emotional. I find boredom and loneliness as highly unreasonable.

dhw: Why do you compare purpose and emotion? Emotion can be a spur to purpose. Boredom and loneliness can motivate a mind to invent something whose purpose is to relieve such feelings. Why is that unreasonable?

DAVID: Not unreasonable. Just human reasoning about a non-human person.

You can say the same about every single hypothesis concerning God – and you are as human as I am. At least you accept that my hypothesis is reasonable. I can see nothing reasonable in the hypothesis that your God’s one and only purpose was to create humans, and therefore he designed the weaverbird’s nest in order to provide energy to keep life going because he had decided to “take his time” before designing the only thing he wanted to design.
