David's theory of evolution (Evolution)

DAVID: God in charge chose to evolve. Perfectly simple. What you do is keep complaining about a God who isn't impatient and should immediately reach His goal. How do you know He should? We will go round and round with no end.

dhw: You have left out your belief that the creation of H. sapiens was his one and only goal, that he decided not to pursue that goal for 3.X billion years and therefore “had to” specially design every non-human branch of the bush of life to keep life going, and that although you have no idea why he would have done so, it is logical provided we abandon human logic, and any other explanation of the bush and of his purpose can be dismissed as humanization, although it is possible that he does think like us.

DAVID: My beliefs remain the same.

dhw: Fair enough, so long as you stick to your agreement that in order to stick to the above beliefs (which you keep leaving out whenever you respond), you must abandon all human reasoning, and you also accept the fact that my humanly logical alternatives are possible because God may very well think like us.

DAVID: God may or may not follow human reasoning. We cannot know, only guess. That humans were His final goal is shown by our very special evolution and the arrival of human consciousness. My beliefs will continue and I view them as logical.

In relation to the incongruities, you have said quite openly: “Nothing illogical required if one does not apply human reasoning to the actual history” and “You try to make God logical to fit your human thinking. It doesn’t work.” On the assumption that you are human, I don’t see how you can now claim that you view the collection of beliefs you keep omitting as “logical”. Your admission of illogicality is reinforced by your cry: “Haven’t you realized by now, I have no idea why God chose to evolve humans over time?
