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

DAVID: My point is God designs new systems from existing ones. That is evolution.

dhw: You had used automatic cellular behaviour as evidence that only a designer (your God) could provide the necessary instructions. My point is that the same instructions would have been passed on by intelligent cells if they were the designers of the new system. And intelligent cells designing new systems from existing ones is also evolution. (But the original intelligent cells may have been designed by your God.)

Note the only source for cellular intelligence you offer is God. So why are cells intelligent without God?

DAVID: We evolved from the past organisms and of course from the early primate groups. That group is our direct ancestors, but we go way back to bacteria! I view evolution of all branches part of God's design of evolution, and He decided what He needed to do.

dhw: Your reply blatantly avoids the question of how ALL branches of evolution could be “part of the goal of evolving [= directly designing] humans” ALL branches of the bush go back to bacteria, but that does not make the brontosaurus or your dog or your horses our ancestors.

Agreed, not directly, but all parts of the general system of evolving from bacteria into many branches of the giant bush.

DAVID: The huge bush is energy supply for our giant population. Why do I have to keep repeating the obvious logic? ;-)

dhw: The huge bushes of the past do not supply one drop of energy for our giant population of the present:“extinct life plays no role in current time”. Why do you keep repeating arguments which you yourself have demolished? I really think we should close this thread, as your avoidance of the issue can only leave us running around in the same circles.:-(

You are stating the obvious. Evolution is a continuum of development over massive amounts of time, which you keep chopping up into separate unrelated compartments. The dinos ancestors and ours are bacteria!!! ;-)

dhw: See “Balance of nature: ecosystems are losing diversity” for a truly scurrilous distortion of this whole argument.

I'll look
