Evolution and humans: all over Africa (Evolution)

dhw: There are no answers if you keep insisting that God did it all, even though his prime purpose was to produce the brain of Homo sapiens. If you allow for the possibility that instead he gave organisms the ability to do things for themselves, you have an answer to all my questions. (See “Evolution: survival and adaptation")

DAVID: That takes us back to God-lite, His giving a mechanism to organisms to change to newer (better?) forms, through their own action. But do you seriously think God would offer a free-style mechanism after producing the universe to support life, starting life, and then let organisms go it on their own? So He could watch the fun as they stupidly create all sorts of weird objects. That has been your approach. If I invested as much effort as God did, I'd at least guide the process. I'll stick with my thoughts.

Why “stupidly”? I thought you were full of wonderment at and appreciation of the astonishing variety and beauty and cleverness of nature’s wonders. So why wouldn’t your God look on them in the same way?

You keep going on about purpose. Then tell me what you think was his purpose in creating life with all its wonders, including the human brain, and then in hiding himself.
