DAVID: They can, but only if God gives them planning ability.

dhw: I would subsume planning ability under the heading of an autonomous inventive mechanism, but apparently your God's powers are too limited for him to provide organisms with that. However, thank you for now accepting that evolution might advance through a natural drive for improvement. Another problem solved.

That is a stretch of my comments. There is obviously some sort of 'drive to complexity', for that is what we see. I would dispute that it is 'natural', but instead state that it is guided.

DAVID: Simple answer. Why are humans here? An extremely improbable event.

All of life is an extremely improbable event, and every innovation, lifestyle and natural wonder is an extremely improbable event. That still doesn't tell us why God had to design the monarch's migration, the weaverbird's nest and the duck-billed platypus in order to produce/feed humans.

With all the extremely improbables, and lets add the sudden origin of our fine-tuned universe to the list, I don't see why you can't accept the idea of God running everything. Something is a first cause.
