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

DAVID: The brontosaurus is a step on the way to humans. It could not provide human foods as it disappeared 60+ million years ago, which points out the silliness of your question. Life's bush at that time offered energy for the brontosaurus, not for us.

dhw: In what way is it a step on the way to humans? Please tell us the connection. Your answer to the second question points out the silliness of your argument that your God designed every extinct life form in order to provide food for humans, which is the only reason you have given for him directly designing 3.X billion years’ worth of non-human life forms “as part of the goal of evolving humans”. It highlights the absurdity of such non sequiturs as “He understood the whole bush of life is necessary as a food supply for all. Especially with the ever rising size of the human population.” “God knew we would populate the Earth as he designed the entire bush of life for our food supply.” “The massive bush not directed at human development supplied the food for all including now the huge human population, which God obviously expected to appear.” What has the brontosaurus, plus millions of other extinct organisms, got to do with supplying food for the huge human population? You have answered: nothing at all.

DAVID: Evolution is a continuum of advancing events. You totally ignore the concept. Of course the brontosaurus is not directly connected to us. But it is a step on the way as we were evolved by God. Each step has a bush of food supply for all. Each step is self-sufficient at the time of that step.

dhw: The advancing events did not advance in a continuum towards the direct design of H. sapiens. The vast majority of events advanced to extinction, and yes indeed, each event was self-sufficient and, in your theory, directly designed by your God. You’ve agreed that the vast bush of the past “plays no role in current time”. So how can you possibly argue that every single advancing event was “part of the goal of evolving (= directly designing) humans”?

DAVID: The continuum is the process not the organisms~!!!

dhw: Precisely. The continuum consists in organisms descending from other organisms and “advancing” in thousands of different directions, 99% of which have led to extinction. The process did NOT lead in the direction of one particular species. You have agreed that there is no connection between all the extinct species and humans, and there is no connection between their bush of food supplies and our own bush of food supplies. So same question: how can all the past bushes of life forms and food supplies, which have no connection with humans, have been “part of the goal of evolving (= directly designing) humans”?

Again the same simple answer. God ,the Creator, chose to evolve us from bacteria. You can't argue with my belief, arrived at logically 30 years ago, from all the evidence I analyzed from an agnostic position. Advances in evolution absolutely requires a designer.
