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

DAVID: I start with the firm belief God exists and creates reality, and therefore evolved humans from bacteria. Your opinion/ question in my view is that God did it wrong. In other words why didn't He directly create us if He is so powerful? Ask Him. I don't know His exact thoughts leading to that decision, and for some reason He is not informing me.
I maintain God exists and creates the history we know. In my view you are simply arguing with what He decided to do.

dhw: For argument’s sake, I am accepting that God exists and has created the history that we know. The history that we know is billions of years’ worth of life forms etc., of which humans are the latest. It is not history that your God directly designed every single life form, or that every single life form was “part of the goal of evolving [= directly designing] humans.” But it is YOUR THEORY that this is what he decided to do, and it is YOUR THEORY, not God, that I am arguing with. When you oppose my theory that your God decided to give evolution free rein and watches the results with interest, do I accuse you of arguing with God’s decision? You admit you “don't know why He used a bush of hominin/homos to reach a final goal of sapiens”, and you can’t find any reason for your God designing millions of extinct life forms and food supplies with no connection to humans, which makes nonsense of your claim that they were all “part of the goal of evolving [= directly designing] humans”. I suggest we leave it at that.

Of course the difference is our individual belief systems which are in total disagreement. You call my beliefs nonsense, and I respond to your reasoning about God as logical if you humanize Him. We have different view of God's personality, who is like no other person we know. WE can leave it at that, as we will never reach an agreement.
