I initially skipped Daniel's post because I'm tired of this creationism thing, but on noticing that Harv welcomed him to the forum I changed my mind. Then I was surprised to read this little nugget:

God, if He is worth worshiping, cannot be a deceiver

I never thought about that before, but a world filled with magic, where things happen which we cannot explain, would probably be an awful place to live. We shouldn't be complaining that we don't see enough miracles, we should rather thank God that everyday we open our closets and find clothes and not monsters, that everyday we wake up and are in the same room we fell asleep, that everyday we turn the ignition in our vehicles we hear a 'vroom' and not a choir of angels or a whale song.

God's greatest gift to us is a world that makes perfect sense. God can do everything, but He is generous enough to severely limit His omnipotence so that we may come to know Him. And that is the least we can expect from a perfect being.
