Natures wonders: squid eye lens focuses exactly (Introduction)

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.

DAVID: 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.

I have looked at the history of the time involved, and I fail to see why your all-powerful God, who can by definition do whatever he wants, needed to specially design billions of organisms, lifestyles and natural wonders just to pass the time until he could produce the only thing he wanted to produce, which was the human brain and which, according to you, didn’t “appear” but was specially created. Under “bacteria can spear amoebas” you wrote: “We have no answer to the question of why God took so long to get there.” If you have no answer, maybe that is because "your conflations are not an argument, but confused thinking".
