Evolution and humans: Neanderthal lungs larger (Evolution)

dhw: First you accuse me of being illogical by erecting a straw man (you know perfectly well that I do NOT believe in a chance origin of life and consciousness), and then you dodge the issue (yet again) of why your God would personally design every innovation, lifestyle and natural wonder extant and extinct if his purpose was to produce the brain and body of H. sapiens. In fairness, however, you did offer “experimentation” as a logical explanation, but when I pointed out that this meant either your God didn’t know what he wanted, or he knew what he wanted but didn’t know how to get it, you dismissed the idea and scurried back to your God’s logic being different from ours. If you refuse to accept a logical explanation, and cannot come up with another logical explanation that you find acceptable, then you can hardly blame me for attacking your logic, or for pointing out that if your God’s logic is different from “ours”, that is an acknowledgement that you can’t find a logical explanation![/b]

Meanwhile, yet again you have resolutely ignored issue 2) (bolded above), which is the one on which I challenge your logic. However, since you have repeatedly accepted that this part of your hypothesis cannot be explained by human logic (i.e. is illogical according to your human mind), I will refrain from pointing out its illogicality until the next time you repeat it.

I feel I have answered you. My theory is as before, that God uses evolution to produce the life He wants to produce. It is based on the pattern of evolution I see. I do not accept survival of the fittest as a driving force. And therefore I think environmental changes result in minor adaptations and not jumps in species. Since humans are a species above and beyond any other organism produced they, therefore, are an obvious goal. At many points the jumps (gaps) in form and physiology require prior design, so they can be produced fully functional at that new level. I fully believe all of this, and I can understand why you don't. Until you accept God in the way I do you will not. I reached all of these conclusions logically for me, and now I have faith. I do not try to enter God's mind to explain why it works this way, but it all is logical to me. I do not think I have to enter His mind. I don't see how you can attack this as illogical since I view your views as lacking logic. Your analysis of God's thoughts lead to nowhere since they are unproven hypotheses and certainly are not a solution to our questions, simply raising more questions. I've questioned and I've stopped and accepted, Deyanu.
