It's really as easy as understanding benevolence and malevolence. All people and animals understand this, including you. Religious paradigm unnecessary without motive.
Thank you for validating scripture!

Yet .... creationists base everything on the unobserved.
Irony meter busted again.
Creationists base their theories on holy books. Those are man made objects, not natural world observations.

First you get evidence, then you base theories on what you find. Until I see a godlike individual going around, defying all physics, I'm not going to invent such a thing.

Why would humans want to create another Earth, there are probably an infinite number of Earths out there.

The universe formed, there were certain "laws" in the universe. The Earth formed as a result of these laws. Now we're on it. There, explained at a level even you can comprehend.

Suck eggs. You are one of the boofheads have no clue about what is or isn't a creationist site.
"let's just say"..What now are you still unclear what is or isn't a creationist site even though you can open the links and look for yourself. Don't you know how to open links either?
Your ignorance supports the fact that you have no idea about recent advances in evolutionary theory. It is that simple. It is like I am trying to have a debate with a 12 year old.
Now you're just being a forum mud wrestler!

That sciencemag.org site looks fairly legitimate, but don't read into what is posted. Things like "negative epistasis" doesn't mean that natural mutation doesn't drive evolution. It just means what scientists have always said. A vast majority of mutations are harmful. I suppose that it also says that even with the best of efforts, some species run out of strategies to exploit and go extinct.

Researchers don't usually spew out political dogma. It's dangerous to their careers. I will concede that university types tend to have some liberal prejudices and most consider religions that fight against a natural order to be obstructionist.

That's what it comes down to. Science is about a natural order that is NEVER changed by divine intervention. The burden of proof is on you. Nobody has to prove a negative.

Than we can assume that he is already complete in purpose. No further action required.
