Back to theodicy and David's theories (The nature of a \'Creator\')

dhw: It is you who consider him a control freak because you insist that he would never give up control of evolution! This is YOUR view of his nature!

This is your humanized version of His nature. It is a derogatory term for humans!!!

Viral DNA in us

DAVID: I have to return to we don't understand everything, but will find OK answers later on.

dhw: Why don’t you return to the fact that since you have no idea how your beliefs can fit in with the facts of life’s history, your beliefs might be wrong?

DAVID: My facts fit my concept of life's history. it is your use of logic that is struggling.

dhw: Then, for the thousandth time, please explain why a God whose one and only purpose was to design humans and their food supply, designed millions of life forms and their food supplies, 99% of which had no connection with humans. I quote (amongst other quotes): “extinct life has no role in current time”.

The bolded quote is obvious. There is no contemporaneous time connection, as you try to distort a misinterpretation of it.

dhw: Please stop playing this cracked record. You have agreed that he possibly (and earlier probably) has thought patterns and emotions similar to ours.

DAVID: My current position, only as to use of logic. Remember?

dhw: February 6 or 7: “All we can be sure of is logic on his part. His thought patterns and emotions are possibly similar, but that possibility cannot be used to give Him human desires.”

dhw: It is, of course, absurd to separate “desires” (e.g. the desire to create something interesting) from human thought patterns and emotions. And why is it illogical for a Creator to want to create things that will interest him?

He is above finding a creation for self-interest. You do not understand how you humanize Him.
