dhw: Even if we are the end point, that does not mean that we were the one and only purpose from the very beginning, which is the “contention” that causes all the contortions in your logic.
DAVID: I have given you a full and logical explanation. I fully accept God's choice of method without question. What is illogical is that you do not find it logical. But you don't accept God unreservedly but constantly entertain alternate hypotheses as to his thought patterns and intentions, most of which are patterns of human thought.

dhw: Choice of method to do what? You yourself cannot understand why, if your God has full control and his sole purpose was to produce H. sapiens, his method of fulfilling his purpose was to spend 3.5+ billion years specially designing millions of other life forms, lifestyles and natural wonders simply so that the organisms could eat one another until 3.5+ billion years had passed. That is what is illogical, and it is this illogical hypothesis that you “fully accept”. All our hypotheses are patterns of human thought, and yours is based on the premise that because humans are so clever, your God couldn’t possibly have wanted to do anything else besides creating us. If that isn’t a human pattern of thought, I don’t know what is.

You still want to pursue 'illogical' God thoughts and procedures. You accept that God could have produced us in six days and rested on the seventh. So why did He evolve us? I accept history that we evolved and since I accept God as existing, I accept He did it His way. You, without accepting God, have concluded God made an illogical judgment. Your problem not mine. Of course both of us as limited humans used human reasoning. At least mine is not embellished.
