Irreducibly complex controls

DAVID: Just accept a designer and your constant confusion will disappear. All life needs a big bush of food supply.

dhw: But…yet again!...bb if humans were your God’s only goal, why would the designer design countless forms of life and food that had no connection with humans? Just accept that your designer might have had a different goal, or might NOT have individually designed every life form and food, “and your constant confusion will disappear”. [David's bold]

DAVID: I'm not confused. The bold above should be humans were God's desired endpoint using an evolutionary designed process. That is my very logical unchanging position.

dhw:m Which of course is not the problem in your theory. You should have bolded the question: why would the designer design countless forms of life and food that had no connection with humans? And I’ll relieve you of the chore of repeating your answer, which is that I should go and ask God.

Because, as God the creator, He can choose any method He wished and History, which He created, tells He evolved us from the first single cells. I have no problem since I don't question what God presents to us. Your problem is you use human thinking and apply it to what you think God should do. You are not God and cannot enter His mind to analyze His motives. It will be guesswork even if guided by accepting what He has done with His purposes in mind. Start with the approach that all is purposeful toward solutions, experimentation not required.
