David's theory of evolution: James A. Shapiro's view (Evolution)

dhw: I gave you a choice: do you believe your God preprogrammed every bacterial response to new problems, or do you believe he gave bacteria the autonomous intelligence to work out their own responses? That is not a question about speciation.

DAVID: You know I think God gave bacteria instructions abut how to answer each challenge automatically.

dhw: And so the two threads come together. Your God apparently preprogrammed or dabbled every evolutionary innovation etc., plus every bacterial decision, in advance of the need for it. You did not answer my question concerning the pre-planning of every environmental change that required bacterial adaptations and necessitated or allowed for every evolutionary change.

DAVID: Simply, God is in control over cosmological development and life. Of course He planned and pre-planned. Fine tuning shows it. Mathematical equations cover most things:

dhw: Once more you are dodging a direct question by changing the subject. We are not talking about fine tuning of the universe or about mathematical equations. Our subject is your theory of evolution. You believe that your God pre-planned or dabbled every single innovation and every single bacterial response to changing conditions. So do you or do you not believe that he also preprogrammed/dabbled every single environmental change associated with every adaptation, innovation and bacterial response, local and global?

I dodged nothing. God's manufacturing abilities in all spheres show He has the full capacity to plan and dabble every automatic response in bacteria. Did He hurl the Chixculub impact? Very possibly. Remember I view God as in charge, period.
