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

DAVID: Your same chopped up view of evolution, which really is a continuum, each step following the last. In that sense, over much time humans are directly related to bacteria.

dhw: "In that sense", EVERY species is related to bacteria over time, but NOT directly! Firstly, you keep omitting your belief that your God directly designed every species, and extinct life plays no part in current time. And secondly, for your anthropocentric theory to be true, the brontosaurus would have to be “directly related” to humans. By your own explicit admission, it isn’t! You wrote: "Of course the brontosaurus is not directly connected to us".So yet again, why did your God directly design it if his only goal was to directly design H. sapiens?

All stages on all branches follow from previous stages. We are not in the brontosaurus branch which is the point of my quoted comment. But we are all related to bacteria as commonality in DNA's show. It can't be chopped up.

DAVID: In your view early evolution is totally unrelated to the present living organisms.

dhw: Where did you get that from? Look at your own statement: “extinct life plays no role in current times”. EXTINCT LIFE! For those of us who believe in common descent, every living organism is descended from bacteria. So how does that come to mean that every EXTINCT organism was part of the goal of evolving (= specially designing) humans (plus their food supply)?

Evolution is a continuum of forms. Extinct life cannot play a role in current life. Your quote of mine adds nothing to your strange view of my theory that God created evolution to produce humans.

DAVID: Again your weird view evolution is discontinuous with no connection between earlier less complex forms and later very complex forms. Again, bacteria are our great grandparents. Have you forgotten your championship of Shapiro using bacteria as an explanation of advancing speciation?

dhw: All forms are/were connected with bacteria, but they all branched off in different directions. They did not proceed in a continuum from bacteria to humans and “Extinct life plays no role in current times.” Shapiro uses bacteria to demonstrate the intelligence of the cell, which he believes is the mechanism that has led to every single organism that ever lived, including the brontosaurus. So how does this theory prove that your God designed the brontosaurus as part of the goal of evolving (= specially designing) humans?

There is no proof of God running evolution. It is my faith. One can easily trace from bacteria to humans. Pre-mammal to mammal to primates to humans.
