Please, try to come up with something reasonable. I know you can.

There are several motivations I can think of:

1) I am ashamed of myself, and don't want my son to know about me.
2) I want my son to succeed on his own, without my help.
3) I feel I'll be a terrible father.
4) I'm interested to see if he will try and track me down or not.
5) I am being forced to do this by someone who has leverage over me.

6) I couldn't give less of a fuck.

Yes, this could be a reason. But the least believable. After so much work!! I think the creator would care at least a little bit.

I don't. Just makes the most sense to me. That is why I said it is "my read" on it. "My read" on many scriptures springs from "Okay, let's assume they're not talking about supernatural shit, then what could this be trying to say in practical terms?"

Why should I start from that position? If someone is looking for a dissertation topic the burden is on them to explain to the committee why their work is novel. My starting position is "There's nothing new under the sun."

OK, I don't want to argue with that. Smile

The reason why I like them is because I BELIEVE each of them has parts of the truth.
Can I ask you more questions?

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

RE: Theistic Evolution Questions
Thank you!!

1)So, we pretend that you are Creator(Male). We even pretend that you are a parent - father.
Of course, we pretend that you are very good father because you want your son to succeed. But what does it mean - to succeed? To succeed in what?
and the most important question in my view is this:
why?
why? why? why? someone should succeed?

2) I'm interested to see if he will try and track me down or not.
Why would you want to know this? Is there any reason for that?
And wait, are you telling me that you don't know future events with certainty? If yes, why? Do you(creator and father) know anything with certainty? If yes, what do you say it would be?

5) I am being forced to do this by someone who has leverage over me
who or may be what could it be?
