DAVID: If I am correct that God is the consciousness of the universe, it pervades everything and every living organism. However use of that consciousness is limited. Bacteria can't. Humans can. That is where we differ.

dhw: According to you, humans can and doggies can and any organism with a brain can. The only difference is one of degree. But you have agreed that bacteria are conscious (= aware of what is outside and inside themselves). So what do you think is the point of them being conscious if they can’t use their consciousness and have to rely on God’s preprogramming or direct dabbling to provide all the solutions to all their problems?

Bacteria are conscious in the sense that they can receive stimuli and react to them. I still think it is all automatic.
