DAVID: I should have read this entry first. My answer is written:

Your phrase, 'closer to the truth' is the key to your thinking. I view one of the three as THE truth. You imply there is possibly a fourth way or more and we can never know for sure, and you cannot except anything beyond absolute proof.

dhw: Answered on the fossils thread, but yours is NOT an answer to my comment on “purpose”, which has been a major point of disagreement between us. If God exists, I would also see him as full of purpose, and for years we have argued the toss about your contention that the purpose of the whole higgledy-piggledy bush, with all its allegedly specially designed innovations, lifestyles and natural wonders extant and extinct, was to keep life going until he could produce the brain of Homo sapiens. This has nothing to do with the EXISTENCE of God or with science. It is a speculation that raises question after question, which you admit you cannot answer, and yet you refuse to consider an alternative which you agree fits in with the whole history.

Your approach turns God into a spectator of His creation which He enjoys, I assume. I avoid humanizing Him as much as I can considering I think as a human and He is a personality like no other personality, i.e., not a human personality.
