We are "god" like beings. There are 7 billionon of us on the earth today. Conclusion; the universe allows for intelligent beings. God need only be smarter than us. No doubt there are beings on earth smarter than you and I. We seem ro be super natural to this solar system. Logically, the existence of God would be no less surprising than you or I.
This is a bit of a false analogy since in the dog species tor ezample,,, poodles and german shepherd traits exist at the same . Both groups exist at the same time --no evolution as both groups seem to be surviving quite fine. See Mendelssohn's laws on heredity. Maybe you mean desirable from a human point of view.
Many evo-atheists are heartily materialistic.They believe there is no such thjng as free moral agency and essentially evo reigns supreme. You seem to be mixing world views (philosophies).
According to evo theory,,, there is no good or bad. Natural selection will select whether belief in God or disbelief will allow us to be more fit to survive.
Now your first statement is very interesting in how you define a god-like being. As far as I understand it, and correct me if I'm wrong, your definition states that a god-like being is a being that is sentient; able to create tools, weapons, ect.; and able to control ones environment. Under this definition, we are very much god-like. This is a very interesting theory in that the possibility then exists for god to be from another world and just be more advanced. In fact truthfully, to me at least, this is the most logical theory for god. Now mind you this isn't supernatural because the universe would more then allow for this. However to someone from the dark-ages or even from greece, we would seem like gods because we have flashlights or cell phones. Have you watched the new star trek movie? In the first part of the movie something similar happens. An alien race would then only be not concerned about a prime directive.
I'd love to talk about this more and maybe theorize with you more if you could make a new thread. Right now I fear I am only boring others reading this.
You are correct in that I accidentally made a false analogy, for that I apologize. What I meant was that evolution works in a similar way in that a desired trait are picked out and undesirable traits are weeded out. In this I'm comparing natural selection to human selection. However the reason dog breeding is not considered evolution is the fact that the original dog breed still exists. Two species can exist that came from one species, however the origin species is usually weeded out.
As far as evo-aitheists go, I find that most of those I have met have been good moral people and as far as I know them they aren't materialistic. Now just to clarify, when you say evo do you mean evolution or evolutionists? As far as evolution goes, this is their world view that evolution is the reason we are here. For myself, I follow along what one paleontologist said "I don't believe in evolution, I study it."As far as evolutionists, this may be true for some of them but I encourage to remember that we are not all the same and in fact I bet most do not believe this. Remember the saying "the squeaky wheel gets the grease"? Its sort of like that in that those that believe this are perhaps just the loudest of the bunch.
As far as you last statement goes... yes yes and yes again. This is completely true.
