Miscellany (General)

Spiders lasso

dhw: So once more, please tell us why you think your interested God created all the life forms, including humans, and their food supplies.

None of us know that answer. Theology is filled with guesses.


Fin to limb genes

DAVID: Answered in my new entry on DNA pre-planning.

dhw: Totally irrelevant to the questions I am asking. But I’ll rephrase them for you: what direction do you see in the 99% of preplanned, extinct life forms that had no connection with humans although humans were your God's one and only purpose, or in the preplanned bad bacteria and viruses that cause so much suffering?

You've again ignored necessary food supply. I have said I'll wait to condemn bad bugs, which may turn out to have good purpose.


EGNOR ON FREE WILL

DAVID: I like Egnor's reasoning. You have a different approach I do not accept as a proper form of dualism as I view it.

dhw: His subject was free will, and he totally ignored the cause-and-effect argument against free will.

Define your cause and effect rebuttal. Brain responses per Libet?


Highest speed claw snapping

DAVID: Part of the always necessary food supply as I've stated. Each tiny econiche system supports other larger systems thus providing food for all. Without an energy supply chain life disappears.

dhw: Yes, we know that, and that has always been the case with every life form that ever existed. So do you think that 3.8 billion years ago your God pre-planned claw-snapping, or popped in to construct a special claw-snapability in order to provide humans with their food supply? My question is serious, because the only alternatives to your theory are random mutations and cellular intelligence.

You have never told us where cellular intelligence comes from except possibly God. We both reject random mutations, so that leaves God in charge or cell intelligence out of nowhere or chance. Very weak.
