Evolution and humans: all over Africa (Evolution)

DAVID: The burst of monkeys only created monkeys. The burst of hominins created the human brain, the most complex organ on Earth. Obviously God's purpose.

dhw: So why the burst of monkeys? Or are you agreeing with me that your God allowed monkeys to do their own bursting? Or are you suggesting that only a burst of monkeys could have kept life going until your God could fulfil his purpose of producing the human brain?

DAVID: Obvious comment by me: monkeys in a zillion varieties did not improve their brain abilities. Our human burst did. Why the difference? Perhaps God at work.

I am not denying that the human brain has more abilities than the monkey brain. I am asking if your God allowed monkeys to do their own bursting, or did he have to organize a burst of monkeys in order to fulfil his purpose of producing the human brain? As for God at work, I’m pleased to see a little note of caution now, in the shape of a “perhaps”. And as for why the difference, yes indeed, why the difference between the weaverbird’s nest (which apparently only God could design) and the robin’s?
