comment How important is knowing functionality before coding?
We mistake expertise with big design up front. An expert in design asks the right questions, makes many decisions up front and knows these decisions are right. The remaining parts are dealt with in an 'agile' method. When the beginner emulates this behaviour, he cannot comprehend the design decisions and blames his failure on the design process, insisting on what he could see: more agile.

comment Is continuous creation and deletion of tables a sign of an architectural flaw?
After properly studying the domain. There is a limited number of properties which completely define an entity. Some (increasingly complex) examples: a 2D point is completely defined by two coordinates, an address is completely defined by a country, a fields version and a realization of a set of address fields defined by another entity (using a country id, a version and constraints).
