David's theory of evolution Part Two (Evolution)

dhw: You’ve slid over the fact that I offer various alternative versions of God and his motives and actions. You also slide over the fact that your highly individual theory of evolution makes no sense even to you, which is why you say you needn’t or even shouldn’t try to understand your God’s logic.

DAVID: […] The bolded portion above is your constant distortion of how I think about the entire subject. My conclusions are entirely logical to me. You have trouble in seeing my logic exactly because your version of God is so different from mine.

QUOTES from your own posts: “Nothing illogical required if one does not apply human reasoning to the actual history.”
You try to make God logical to fit your human thinking. It doesn’t work.
Haven’t you realized by now, I have no idea why God chose to evolve humans over time?”
“I do not try to analyze His reasons for His purposes, as sheer guesses”

dhw: Yes, I have trouble seeing your logic, because it consists solely in telling me that as humans beings we can’t possibly find a logical explanation for what you believe to be your God’s purpose and method.

It has nothing to do with a logical explanation. We can create ones that seem logical, but prove nothing concrete. It is an acceptance that we certainly can identify a purpose, as Adler does by describing our unique result from evolution. I totally accept the proposition that the uniqueness defines God's purpose, but in no way tells us why He made that determination. You and I have made all sorts of proposals of God's thought patterns. They are all fun guesses to create and you love to think of all possibilities ad nauseum while never concluding anything. That is your nature, not mine. Perhaps it is my training as a physician in which I acted as a detective tying to solve illness problems definitively and expeditiously. Your personality uses a fantasy world to write brilliant books and plays. Perhaps that explains your fanciful approach to God's reasoning behind his purposes as Creator. If, as you have admitted, we really cannot know His reasoning, what is the purpose in trying to guess? Fun and games? Nothing is ever proven. Nothing with so-called logic may be correct.
