Back to David's theory of evolution (Evolution)

dhw: ...if he only wanted to design H. sapiens, why did he first design all the earlier, now extinct life forms (which below you call “the giant bush”)? Sometimes you admit you have no idea, most of the time you dodge the question, but you occasionally offer an extraordinary answer, as below. What is my version? I have offered you several alternatives, all of which you agree are logical, but you reject them all because they endow him with human attributes, which you agree he probably has!

DAVID: It is obvious the giant bush now supplies energy for the whole bush and a burgeoning population of humans.

dhw: The “whole bush” has comprised millions of life forms, natural wonders etc, 99% of which have disappeared, although according to you, your God specially designed all of them. How do those long gone life forms supply energy for the burgeoning population of humans?

DAVID: "Long gone"? Do you purposely ignore we are discussing the evolution of humans? Of course 99% are gone. That is how evolution works.

Once more, as bolded above: we are discussing the question why your all-powerful God directly designed millions of long gone non-human life forms and their food supply if his one and only purpose was to specially design H. sapiens and his food supply.

DAVID: God has the proper foresight to see the future results of humans in charge. You don't seem to understand it or Him.

dhw: I don’t understand how millions of long gone life forms and wonders etc. could have been directly designed in order to feed a species that didn’t even exist. That is why you have said you have "no idea", or we shouldn't even try to understand your God's logic, although in the same breath you tell us his logic is probably similar to ours.

DAVID: My God is sure confusing to you. He evolved us and 99% of species are gone. History!!! You are so confused. The giant bush, now present, feeds all the bush and our huge population, though God's great foresight.

The present bush feeds the present bush. That does not explain why your God, whose one and only purpose is supposed to have been to create H. sapiens, specially designed millions of past bushes that had nothing to do with H. sapiens and have now disappeared. You can find no logical reason for these past bushes. I have offered you various explanations, all of which you agree ARE logical but which you reject by contradicting yourself on the subject of God's human attributes. Yes indeed, your version of God is totally confusing.
