DAVID: I don't have to try to explain something which is God's choice. We will have no way of knowing what option is correct!

dhw: There are different options concerning your God’s purpose and his choice of methods to achieve that purpose. YOUR choice of these options is so illogical that you have no idea why he chose the one option you impose on him (to specially design humans over thousands of millions of years, while specially designing anything but humans). So I would suggest that other options, which you agree are perfectly logical, must have at least an equal chance of being correct.

DAVID: I know you say you cannot follow my logic, but if we start with the premise that the current result of evolution is according to Adler a difference in kind, that makes us special and can easily seen s God's goal. It is just a difference in a starting point of view.

You keep agreeing that you cannot follow your own logic, as in statements like: “I have no idea why God chose to evolve humans over time.” You keep forcing me to repeat the alternative logical hypotheses I have offered to your fixed and inexplicably combined beliefs that your God specially designed every life form, econiche, lifestyle and natural wonder in the history of life but that H. sapiens was his one and only goal: a) he didn’t know how to do it (so his powers are limited); b) the idea didn’t occur to him till late on in the process (not his one and only goal); c) he did not specially design every life form etc. but gave evolution free rein, though sometimes dabbling. You accept that they are all logical, but you reject them all, preferring to stick with the one set of hypotheses you yourself find inexplicable.

DAVID: You can not explain God's methods either. We've covered all the possibilities, and there no conclusions, just guesses, angels on the heads of pins.

I have offered three logical alternatives to your illogical combination of purpose and method. Of course there are no conclusions but only guesses. That also applies to the existence of God. We can only speculate. You embrace logic in your design argument for God’s existence, but reject it in your argument that your God chose to spend 3.5+ billion years not designing the only thing he wanted to design.
