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

DAVID: Agreed. All extinct life forms are not our direct ancestors.

dhw: Thank you. Since ancestry was your only justification for claiming that all extinct life forms were “part of the goal of evolving [= directly designing] humans”, we can say goodbye to Part One of your theory.

I said direct ancestors, which means not recently. all of us are descended from bacteria

dhw: Perhaps now you will stop making such silly statements as: “God knew we would populate the Earth as He designed the entire bush of life for our food supply”.

DAVID: Only silly as in a Godless view of history.

dhw: The food supply consists of life forms! And 99% of them are extinct! Just as the extinct dinosaurs are not our ancestors and have no connection with us, the food they ate – especially the food of the meat-eaters – is also extinct and has no connection with our food supply! “Extinct life has no role in present time.” Goodbye to Part Two of your theory.

Still chopping up evolution so it doesn't look like a continuum!!!

DAVID: 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: Yet again, all multicellular life forms are descended from bacteria, but humans are not descended from 99% of the branches of life’s bushes. As you said: “We are not in the brontosaurus branch”. Therefore, as above, it is absurd to claim that the brontosaurus and his food supply were “part of the goal of evolving (= directly designing] humans”.

DAVID: There is obvious logic in building a giant food supply for us to live on.

dhw:n But there is no logic in claiming that your God specially designed 3.X billion years’ worth of extinct food supplies (= all the organisms in an econiche) for us to live on when we were not even there. Once again in your words: “extinct life has no role in present time.” Therefore neither the extinct life forms nor their extinct food supplies could have been part of the goal of evolving [= specially designing] humans! Please stop trying to defend a theory which you have effectively demolished by drawing attention to “the obvious”.

Again evolution is a continuum from bacteria to us. And my belief is God was in charge of designing it. You can keep twisting quotes out of context all you wish. I've not changed.
