David's theory of evolution Part Two (Evolution)

dhw: In your theory he chose to specially design every single species, lifestyle etc. “over the time it took”. But if his one and only purpose was to design H. sapiens, it is not logical that he should spend 3.X billion years deliberately not designing H. sapiens (according to you that was his “choice”) – hence your agreement that we mustn’t apply human reasoning to the facts of history.

DAVID: Once again you refuse to accept the premise God chose to evolve human over the time it took. You refuse to accept that human reasoning about God. I never consider questioning His choices of action. You do that and it makes the issue your sole problem.

dhw: If God exists, I accept the premise that he chose the method of evolution to produce every species that ever existed, including humans. According to you, he specially designed every one of them. What I refuse to accept is the premise that he did so because although H. sapiens was his one and only purpose, he decided not to fulfil his purpose for a period of 3.X billion years, and therefore had to design all the other species to cover the time which, for no reason you can think of, he had decided to take before turning his attention to humans. And what you never consider questioning is not your God’s “choices of action” but your interpretation of his choices, and you refuse to acknowledge that since your theory is not illogical “if we do not apply human reasoning to the facts of history”, that means your theory IS illogical if we apply human reasoning to the facts of history.

The bolded above is an illogical twist of my conclusion of not trying to judge God's thinking and actions that history presents. I simply accept what God does. And what is wrong with God having humans as an eventual goal of His creation by evolution?
