So entertaining humans takes priority to giving whale cubs a better chance of survival in your god's design plans? That's kind of sick.
<quoted text>
Most animals communicate in some way and have some kind of language. Bees for example have different 'dances' they perform to tell other bees where they can find flowers.
<quoted text>
So sharks aren't 'cute' and don't roll over and play dead for fish, that doesn't mean they are somehow less evolved. When talking about evolution we're talking about which animal has best evolved to adapt to their environment, not which animal has evolved to be more entertaining to an audience at Sea World.
Playing basketball is not a useful skill when trying to survive in an ocean. In fact, it's not even a necessary skill when trying to survive at Sea World...
Also if all animals were designed by an omnipotent god, shouldn't they all their designs be equally perfect? You know, including the preprogrammed biological robot...

Sharks play a game similar to 'basketball' with seals amongst demselves.

.....Whale cubs taste delicious. Porpoise much betta.

Such deductions, over a long period of time are also behind some spiritual beliefs and morality, including gay sex.
Told you it would be used against you.
The idea behind the Christian virgin birth and sacrifice was God realized it was to big for us to see. Therefore it melded with us, imparting part of itself directly within human form that then had to deal with the physical world. God went slumming. This gave a face to the message it had been trying to pass on, but was too big and vague for mankind to see. God set man loose way back, and this was the way he tried to call some back home. Reuniting with the creative spirit.
The Christian virgin birth is behind gay sex???

That's amazing. Why don't you sell that idea to the Christians?

Seriously, Dave, you're the poster child for bafflingly insane.
