Mario,

>>>While I don't agree with all of the conclusions he reaches, I agree that a mathematical order external to (or independent of) the universe probably does exist. Harv claims that makes me a theist. I don't see how. I can only suggest that it's a semantic difference: Harv views God as any underlying principle/order to the universe. I'm a lot more restrictive. I require sentience.>If it ain't sentient, it ain't divine. And personally I think self-awareness is a lot to ask for from a "divine order," no matter how influential and powerful it is. So, in short, I see room for God as far as mathemtical order/purpose goes, but no room for God as far as a sentient Creator goes.
