Evolution and humans: big brain size uses energy (Evolution)

dhw: However, the next exchange seems to me to offer a much more promising approach:

DAVID’s comment (under "Universe too big"): It is possible the giant universe is to create galaxies all over the universe with humans!
dhw: Yep, and it’s possible that there are no other humans, that there are other forms of life, that there is no life at all, that there is a God, and that there is no God. So many things are possible, and currently we have no idea of the truth. It’s enough to drive a person to agnosticism.
DAVID: It is possible that God is experimenting with different types of humans, those with total free will and those which lesser amounts to see how their civilizations turn out.

dhw: Yes, anything is possible. And what a wonderfully “humanized” picture of your God you are now presenting to us. "Wow, look at them there wonders that my autonomous evolutionary mechanism has just thrown up...another type o' pre-whale, the weaver's nest and what is THAT? A duckbilled platypus! What a great show! Can't wait to see how evolution turns out next." And even: "Humans at last! Can't wait to see how their civilizations turn out!"

Glad you like it. More than one Earth, each in a different galaxy is possible. Doesn't make God any more human, just an experimenter.
