dhw: Evolution and humans: Neanderthal lungs larger (Evolution)

DAVID: Again ignoring the need for energy . Larger more complex forms need more energy while evolution evolves to create humans. All answered elsewhere. What you have written makes no sense to me and perhaps many others.

dhw: All life forms require energy, and larger more complex forms require more energy, and evolution evolved to create trilobites and dinosaurs and spiders and whales and the weaverbird and the duckbilled platypus and us, all of which has taken time. All blindingly obvious and – as in the passage you have quoted but ignored – it has nothing to do with your anthropocentric interpretation of your God’s wants and motives and methods.

Repeat: I accept God's methods as exhibited.

DAVID: I cannot read/enter His mind, nor can anyone else. I can guess at intentions based on the results I see.

dhw: So if it’s OK for you to guess, and insist that your guesses are right even though you can’t explain how the method fits the intention, why do you criticize me for guessing at his intentions in a manner which does link up logically with the results we see?

I think my God stays in control. Giving up speciation control as you propose may take evolution's course off the path to humans.

DAVID: I can only look at what fossils are found and what they tell us about God's possible intentions. Human existence, based on survivability, is not a reasonable view. We are too complex for that approach (Darwin).

dhw: You are not talking to Darwin, you are talking to me, and I did not mention survivability. I was simply pointing out yet again the dichotomy in your thinking.

You are very influenced by Darwin and don't seem to recognize it.
