David's theory of evolution Part Two (Evolution)

dhw: Wrong interpretation of what? Who can tell which way is “fallacious” and which is correct? Only God knows the right way, if he exists.

Skipped over the fact that I specifically gave reasons why God must not be thought of in human terms. I was taught that by reading experts. Were you taught that?

DAVID: He precisely defined our free will. He followed his purpose. That doesn't tell us He was purposely imprecise elsewhere.

dhw: Do please tell us his precise definition. Whatever he did would, I assume, have followed his purpose. But if his purpose might have been to get us to surprise him, it is not illogical to suggest that maybe he had the same purpose for the whole history of evolution. At least, in contrast to your theory, that would offer us a clear explanation for the ever changing bush of evolution.

My reasons for the huge bush and how it arrived are ignored as usual. Don't you realize, looking for surprises is humanizing God, as usual.

DAVID: I don't know God's reasons before deciding to evolve humans over time. It is easy to guess He foresaw that once we arrived with our special giant brain, we would become a swarm all over the Earth and required a huge well-organized bush of econiches to give us the enormous food supply we needed. (dhw’s bold)

dhw: You don’t know why he decided to take 3.X billion years to directly design (your definition of “evolve”) humans and their “giant bush”. However, you think that his direct design of 3.X billion years’ worth of extinct “giant bushes” prior to his direct design of humans and their own “giant bush” is a logical explanation!

DAVID: It is to me. God decided to evolve us. History says we were evolved. The giant bush is here. We are here and need the bush for food. Where is your illogical thinking? Again vestiges of your problem with a patient God. Part of your humanizing problem.

dhw: Oops, one slight omission: you’ve forgotten the unexplained and inexplicable direct design of 3.X billion years’ worth of extinct life forms and giant bushes prior to our being directly designed and needing the giant bush he directly designed for us.

Your usual version of why didn't God directly create us in six days. Why don't you want to allow the possibility God decided to evolve us, which history still shows every day. My God is still in charge of history making.
