Evolution, survival and adaptation (Evolution)

dhw: So how do you and your teacher Adler know your God is a personality like none other and indulges in a kind of watching and interest that is different from ours?

DAVID: It is an assumption based on the seeming powers, yet remoteness, of God.

dhw: Why do you assume that watching and being interested in his own creation has a different meaning for your God just because he is all-powerful and remote? I do wish you and Adler would explain what you think the words might mean to him. If you can’t, then why not assume that when you say your God is watching and is interested, he is "watching" and is "interested"?

DAVID: Because we think He does it in His own particular way.

I’ll settle for that. Your God created life and evolution to provide himself with a show which, like all of us, he could watch with interest in his own particular way.
