Natures wonders: squid eye lens focuses exactly (Introduction)

DAVID: ...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.

dhw: 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.

DAVID: Evolution of the brain took time. Did you forget that?

dhw: Evolution of EVERYTHING took time! The weaverbird’s nest didn’t emerge together with the first living cells, did it? As you wrote earlier: ”Everyone has got to eat”. How does that support the argument that God’s only purpose was to produce the human brain and everything else was related to that? The nonpareil of non sequiturs.

Please look at the history of the time involved. Eating did not make the brain but covered the time it took to appear. The eating has nothing directly to do with the purpose of the brain except survival of the evolutionary process until the most complex thing in the universe appeared. Your conflations are not an argument, but confused thinking.
