***What is left for God to do in your view? It seems that you are close to eleminating a need for him altogether.***

For this, I will have to answer a question with a couple of questions.

(1) Is it your belief that God abides outside of our perception of time? I do. That He already knows what is going to happen?(If anything in the bible has ever predicted world(or local) events, it would be a strong piece of evidence that He does).

(2) Did you read the Scientific American magazine for Sept. of this year? It stated, on page 41, "Albert Einstein famously expressed this point when he wrote a to a friend, 'The past, present and future are only illusions, even if stubborn ones'".

It was a very good article. The main idea of the article was that time is relative, hence time didn't exist. It is only our perception that exists.

What I am trying to say is, in effect, from God's point of veiw, all of time could have already happened. What we are doing now could have happened(or not).

Warm Regards,
