Nice link and I like that you caught the point he makes at the end about the nature of the Designer. It is one that I have made in my standard science and religion discussions and it has always bugged me.The comment is made over and over in Scripture, and most pointedly by Jesus on several ocassions, that God is an active agent in hiding knowledge to be reserved for divine revelation. That would seem to contradict the whole God rewards diligent searching for knowledge idea. If God is still active in hiding knowledge then need some kind of test that allows us to identify knowledge that God is hiding. I guess my question is … "Is God still active in hiding knwledge from man?"
James- Very interesting post for the non-science person.As an aside, Ican read your "new" style "matrix" blog on my MacBook Pro, but cannot on my PC. On the PC, allI see is the green/black matrix background with unintelligible print layed on top of it. Strange, huh? No explanation from this end.

Good. That settles the evolution thing. Now we can concentrate on loving each other.
