Natures wonders: squid eye lens focuses exactly (Introduction)

dhw: Why “all the time evolution needed…” if God directed everything? Surely you mean all the time your all-powerful God needed to fulfil his sole purpose of advancing evolution to us. And that still doesn’t explain why he had to design eight stages of whale, the monarch’s migration and the weaverbird’s nest in order to keep life going until he himself could produce the human brain. Would life have ended without them?

DAVID: Same reply. Without nature's balance, not enough food to continue.

dhw: Yes, life goes on so long as there is enough food for any old organism to survive on. Nothing to do with your God’s sole purpose of producing the human brain.

DAVID: You can't avoid the logic of no food, no brain, the endpoint of the process.

No food, no nuttin’, including bacteria, dead dinosaurs, live butterflies, weaverbirds and duckbilled platypuses. “Endpoint” is just another way of saying that in your eyes the process of evolution is finished and the brain was your God’s only purpose. The fact that ALL life requires food does not lend any support whatsoever to this subjective conclusion. It is a total non sequitur.
