Ill answer if we really want to get into the nature of God...but...lets stay on topic its a good one.

Fair enough, what is the purpose of the design?

You know I have never been asked that, its a good question...hmm, at first glance I would say to promote life...but Ill have to think about it.

So did anyone catch the part about the loss of free will in a materialists world? How would you non-believers answer that?

Do you deny free will?
Do you accept that there is something beyond the physical?
Something else?
