DHW: With my theist hat on, I can accept the possibility of God dabbling for particular purposes, but find it impossible to reconcile dabbling and/or preprogramming with the countless innovations and organisms apparently irrelevant to the production of humans if humans were his goal.Worked through evolution (I don't know why)” is nice and honest, but in turn I don't know why you refuse to question a hypothesis that clearly makes no sense to either of us.

Because you are thinking of only one item in a system. A system is not comprised of one entity. It is comprised of multiple entities that may work in a cooperative or antagonistic manner in order to achieve homeostasis within the system, or in order to progress a system in the desired direction.

Also, I personally have an issue with humans being the 'end goal' of the design. I think they are an integral part of the design, and I think they were designed to serve a specific purpose within the system. I do not think they were to be the end goal.

So, since you see so many innovations that are 'irrelevant', could you point some of them out?

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
