Cosmology: milky way size is enormous (Introduction)

DAVID: Your argument makes no sense. Since I believe God chose to evolve humans over time, the evolutionary tree/bush is His creation and therefore makes sense.

dhw: A complete non sequitur, because you keep telling us that the production of H. sapiens was your God’s one and only purpose. Why, then, did he specially design the rest of the non-human evolutionary bush, extant and extinct?

DAVID: You keep distorting my view: God had the goal of creating humans, bu t b y choosing the method of evolution, of course He had to create everything in advance.

There is no distortion. You simply keep leaving out the major question of why he “had to” specially design millions of life forms, lifestyles and natural wonders extant and extinct which have nothing to do with his allegedly one and only purpose of creating H. sapiens, every stage of which was, according to you, specially designed anyway.

DAVID: To get from bacteria to humans required all the 'non-human elements'.

Did it? Then once again, please explain why. And please don’t say they all had to eat or not eat one another until your God could specially design the only thing he wanted to design.

Under “Human evolution
QUOTE: "'I think showing how rare and special our planet is only enhances the case for protecting it," Schwieterman said. "As far as we know, Earth is the only planet in the universe that can sustain human life.'"

DAVID’s comment: I'm not surprised. Our planet has many fine-tuned and undoubtedly unique features. I suspect we are alone.

Which again raises the question of why your God, whose sole purpose apparently was to specially design humans, specially designed the billions of galaxies that are incapable of sustaining life.
