More "miscellany" (General)

Cosmologic philosophy: dhw said once universe too big

DAVID: I simply see God's created history. Humans came last, didn't they

dhw: Last so far. Unfortunately, you have forgotten the rest of your history: namely, the countless life forms and foods he specially designed, most of which had no connection with humans (plus food) although humans (plus food) were his one and only goal. Such lapses of memory are now occurring in every post.

It is not my history, but God's actions. God, as Creator, created evolution, and you don't accept it. "His one and only goal" defines God's purposeful activity. Since humans are here, they represent His purposeful activity.

David v Dawkins

DAVID: My rejection of your pet theories is not ridicule, nor do I ignore them. Are you pouting?

dhw: OK. Both you and Dawkins have faith that your rigid beliefs will be confirmed in the future, and any other beliefs should be ridiculed or ignored or dismissed.

I've just said I don't ridicule or ignore! My non-acceptance/dismissal of you theories is that I cannot logically reach an agreement with your assessments.

DAVID: God is not an experimental scientist!!! God has no need to experiment.
DAVID: God does not need to create His own enjoyment!! I assume He enjoys creating itself.

dhw: How do you know what your God needs?

On the basis of accepting God as the Creator, He knows fully how to create, and is purposeful in reaching His desired goals, whatever they might be.

When continents appeared
QUOTE: We conclude that the first large continents were making their way above sea level around 3 billion years ago—much earlier than the 2.5 billion years estimated by previous research.

dhw: No one would question the rise of the continents or its importance. The sensational news, repeated many times, is the authors’ new “estimate”. Well, it may surprise you to know that my own estimate is 2.7654321 million years ago. However, I am applying for a grant to do further research into this, and I hope I will have your backing.

I'm impressed by your depth of knowledge of the evolution of Earth!!
