Lets not be willfully niave and suppose that nothing in life "points" to a creator, because it does.

You would be correct in the conclusion that we should just set the "no-thing" aside because, after all we don't know what it is or how it works, so lets forget about it. Sounds like the classic agnostic with his head in the sand. But this scenario is not what we all observe! We know that this "no-thing" must transcend space/time and that it cannot be material. It must be transcendant, eternal, able to create natural laws that are extremely fine tuned, create life that can reason, have a personal will, etc.. I could go on and on, you know that.

I just don't buy the agnostic approach to this issue. God's design, love and presence is glarring at us, all around us all the time. We cannot be intellectually honest and "set it aside". Moreover, we only perpetuate the fallacy that that type of thinking produces and had once charged the theist with the "god of the gaps".

sorry if not well thought out, am at work and rushing. : )
