Back to David's theory of evolution: God's error corrections (Evolution)

dhw: So you started this thread in order to tell us that errors don’t matter and we should only consider the successes. We should forget about evolutionary errors because your stream of consciousness made a mess of those. I am gloomy and bleak because I’m not satisfied with your refusal to go on discussing the errors your God can’t control. And I’m biased because I offer a theory which is different from yours. As regards disease-causing errors, anyone suffering from any of the above diseases should bear in mind that they are in a vast minority, and their view of their condition is clouded and pessimistic because you and the vast majority of people have lived for a very long time, you are extremely pleased, and although God was aware of the disease-causing errors in the system he had designed, the errors weren’t his fault, he’d done the best he could to correct them, and he'd left it to humans to correct those he couldn't correct, but apart from that he is still all-powerful.

DAVID: The same old dour view. And you've expressed how amazed you are at God's works in the past.

dhw: The same old refusal to discuss the problem, to recognize the importance of the errors your God was apparently incapable of correcting, to consider any alternative to your interpretation, to regard any opposition to your own fixed belief as “bias”, and to pretend that someone who shares your wonderment at all the miracles of life is “dour” and “bleak” and “clouded” and “pessimistic” because he wants to discuss the subject which you raised (evolutionary and disease-causing errors) and which you made a complete hash of. Fortunately, I know you well enough to believe that you would never have told your young patients that their fatal disease was of “minimal” importance, and they should be grateful for the fact that you have lived to a ripe old age. :-)

I brought up the issue because it is very important to fit it into any concept of God and how He designed life. I knew from the beginning the errors are a most important subject. The point is God recognized the problem from the beginning and His editing mechanisms are remarkably accurate, if not perfect. Obviously all errors are bad as was my first approach in raising this issue. All you have done is concentrate on the 'bad' aspect of it. God invented life and that is all-powerful to me. Your not-powerful wishy-washy god wanted errors to help make more diversity!!
