Theist Accepts That God Moves Things Without Proof.

I do not accept anything without proof. I need a proof that it (God) indeed moves planets (or electrons) and DO NOT SEE any.

Instead, math tells that planets move by constantly falling on gravitating centers - and INDEED math CORRECTLY predicts every detail of such planetary motion just from Newtonian inverse square law (= exchange by virtual gravitons in symmetric 3D space results mathematically in inverse square).

Seeing LACK of explanation and LACK of any prediction from statement "God does it" vesrus CORRECT prediction and logical explanation from math, I conclude that math is much more useful than God(s). It simply works. God does not.

Also, bringing god(s) to the scene makes total mess instead of coherent picture of universe. Now you have to explain HOW god moves planets (or electrons) at once in all the vast universe, breaking all naturall laws and all speed, power and energy limits.

Also, talking to many believers I found that they 1) simply do not know physics/math
2) do not know what they mean by God(s)
3) have no evidence of any act(s)of god(s)
4) ignore important facts about universe and natural laws.

I think, this explains WHY I prefer to rely on math more than on gods.
