3. Greetings!

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]This is a terrific topic for thought. One of my favorite muses had something profound to say (as he often did) on this subject:

[font color="black" face="Arial"]"I'm not an atheist. I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws. Our limited minds grasp the mysterious force that moves the constellations." (From The Faith of Scientists: In Their Own Words, by Nancy Frankenberry, 2009)

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]As you say, "... it's sure fun to chew on."
