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

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!"

DAVID: 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.

A being who experiments with different things to see how they turn out sounds just as “human” to me as a being who invents a mechanism that produces different things so he can see how they turn out. But I’m not complaining. It’s good to see you at last considering these different possibilities. There was a time, I remember, when you vehemently dismissed the idea of God experimenting here on Earth, since you then thought he was in total control and knew exactly what he was doing all the time.
