David's theory of evolution (Evolution)

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.

dhw: 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?”[/i]

DAVID: Remember, I refuse to recognize religious writing about God so as to use only history and science as a proof of God, as shown in my first book. I accept your theorizing about God's intentions the same as the Biblical writings, all conjectures. Karen Anderson 's book shows exactly what I mean, as each book, OT, NT and Quran all have different versions of His personality. All we know about evolution is God took His own sweet time.

dhw: My objections to the incongruities of your theory, which demand the abandonment of human reason, have nothing whatsoever to do with religious writings about God. All we know about evolution is that it has gone on for approximately 3.8 billion years. That does not mean your God started off with the sole purpose of designing H. sapiens, decided to postpone his pet project for 3.X billion years and therefore had to specially design every branch of the non-human bush in order to cover the time he had decided to take before starting to fulfil his one and only purpose. I have offered you several alternatives to these incongruities, two of which actually allow for your anthropocentrism (experimentation, or the idea not occurring to him until late on). You reject them all, because we are supposed to accept that God doesn’t think like humans, although he very well may think like humans.

You are so confused. We can assume God thinks like we do, but we cannot prove that, only look at His works, and work out possible conclusions. The three religious books about God, per Karen Anderson, each show a different personality for God. She thinks the Quran is most adult in its approach, as it uses God's works to study Him. Since we have no other direct evidence, I agree with her. You agree our consciousness is very special. So are our physical capacities which are well beyond anything apes can do. I means to me we always were God's endpoint. I rely on expert opinions to reach my conclusions. What do you do?
