David's theory of evolution Part Two (Evolution)

dhw: […] you refuse to look for any logical explanation for the gaps between the above suppositions. Why are you so afraid of logic?

DAVID: Your 'logic' is a constant humanization of God's thoughts.

Your “humanization” escape route refers to my alternative theistic theories (which you agree are logical, while also agreeing that your God “very well could think like us"). However, my criticism of your theory has nothing to do with humanizing God’s thoughts, and everything to do with your lack of logic: you "have no idea" why an always-in-control God with just one purpose (H. sapiens), and the ability to achieve that purpose any way he wants, chooses to delay fulfilling his one purpose for 3.X billion years and therefore has to design millions and millions of life forms, econiches, lifestyles, strategies, natural wonders etc. just to keep life going until he starts to fulfil his one purpose. I have not offered you a single humanized thought here, but am simply pointing out that YOU have created an explanation of evolution and your God’s intentions which makes no sense even to you. (I’ll give you the quotes again if you insist.)

DAVID: I use Adler's discussion in his book that establishes for Adler and myself that humans were God's purpose in controlling evolution. You know, full well, my thoughts about how God exerted His controls are solely mine, but based upon Adler' conclusion which accepts that God ran evolution. Adler never gets into how God did it; it was not his purpose in presenting his thoughts about God. Adler is fully part of my side of this discussion.

“Fully part” just about sums up the irrationality of calling upon Adler to justify a theory which is entirely your own. If God exists, of course he ran evolution, or let’s say he created the mechanisms for it. The claim that he ran it by designing every single innovation etc. is just one of your guesses, along with the others noted above. But we know from your own words that the way you have him running it makes no sense even to you, which is why you wish to turn your back on logic.
