dhw: Yet another extraordinary creature apparently specially designed by your God to eat/be eaten in order to keep life going for 3.X billion years until he decided to specially design the only thing he had ever wanted to design - H. sapiens?

DAVID: The bold is your humanized version of my God.

dhw: It’s you who keep telling us that H. sapiens was his goal!

DAVID: You are asking why He shouldn't be impatient like us humans would be and get right to it. My God knows exactly what He has to do and does it in very logical fashion. Of course your humanized God looks silly.

dhw: There is nothing logical about having a single goal and then having to do a billion other things because you’ve decided not to pursue that goal for 3.X billion years!

Silly comment: God started to pursue His goal when He created the universe 13.78 years ago. Everything else followed in order.

dhw: It is your illogical interpretation of your God’s motives and methods that looks silly! And the fact that you have no idea why he would choose such a method to implement such a purpose does not exactly lend credence to your fixed belief! And yet again, why do you think your interpretation is less "humanizing" than the proposal that your God actually wanted the whole bush (as opposed to "having to" create it), and humans were not the ONLY thing he wanted?

From another thread: " You keep contorting my line of reasoning. I view our reality as created by God. Therefore, everything we know about our reality is the result of God's choices and actions. Nothing humanizing as I don't question the results, and our specialness indicates His goal.
