DAVID: If you follow the logic that comes from a goal of humans, it is easier to guide the whole process than design inventive organisms that might veer off course unless they have enough guidelines to their inventions.

dhw: If you follow the logic that comes from a goal of humans, it must seem mighty weird that 99% of species “veered off course”, and we have to have knotty nests and fishy camouflage and migrating monarchs in order to design the brain of Homo sapiens. But even in my free-for-all, your God can always dabble if he wants to.

Balance of nature supplies the energy for evolution to continue over time.


DAVID: Why ask for cell cooperation than simply doing it yourself, which is probably God's view since He is in charge.

dhw: Cell cooperation is essential to all forms of life. If you think billions of computer programmes and personal interventions for each form of cooperation are simpler than a single invention, then so be it.

Of course cell communities are designed to work together as they evolve.
