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

DAVID: 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.

We are almost there, except that – to put the record straight – I do not regard any of your individual beliefs as nonsense. That has been a constant source of misunderstanding between us. I see each belief as feasible in its own right: obviously starting with the existence of God. And I can accept the feasibility of your God being in total control, of him designing every life form individually, and of humans being his purpose. Each one on its own is feasible. It is the COMBINATION that makes no sense to me, and logic entails combining ideas to see if they fit together. And so, for the last time I hope (because in fact we are in agreement since you yourself can’t find a logical explanation), what does NOT make sense is the combination of an all-powerful God whose purpose is to directly design sapiens – because according to you, he directly designed every phase from hominin to sapiens – with the direct creation of millions of extinct non-human life forms etc. that had no connection with humans. You have no idea why he would have chosen this method of achieving his purpose, but you will stick to your theory. I think that is the point at which we can shake hands and agree to disagree.
