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

DAVID: 99% had to die away, but at last we can discuss evolution as a continuum with constant branching, providing a giant food supply for the now huge human population. God plans well for the present and the future.

dhw: I really don’t know why you think you can keep dodging and it won’t be noticed. The 99% of life forms and food bushes that branched off from bacteria and eventually died away had no connection with the present food supply for humans. Therefore it makes no sense to claim that they were all “part of the goal of evolving [= specially designing] humans”.

You agree evolution is a continuum and then ignore it and chop it up into unrelated time segments. The bush then was for food then, the bush now for food now. Evolution a dvances step by step over a continuum of time and progressive complexification.

dhw: Humans do not need the huge branching bushes of food that PRECEDED their existence!

DAVID: Of course not. The huge bush is for now. Earlier bushes were much smaller.

dhw: So please would you finally agree that the 99% which died away and had no connection with humans were NOT “part of the goal of evolving [= specially designing] humans”, and you have no idea why he specially designed the 99% and their food bushes if his only goal was to design us humans and our food bush. It won’t hurt you to say it explicitly, and then we can put an end to this discussion.

I won't give in to your distorted illogical view of evolution. The bold is your constant dishonest interpretation of what I have granted: I have no idea why God chose to evolve us. The 99% are a necessary step in any evolutionary process; an obvious statement.
