What I meant by rationality [in its totality] being beyond human comprehension is that, what we percieve as chaos, is entirely rational at some level.

For example, what I percieve, in terms of the way I would do things, is very often different, than what God would have me do. In other words, His perspective should trump my own perspective, scince His view of reality encompasses mine, not the other way around.

This is consistent with the notion that Whoever [or whatever for you materialists out there] created the universe, exists outside the space/time realm.

The alternative notion, that Who/whatever created the universe, owes its existence to the universe, is self-encroaching.

To spell all of this out in English, I veiw the universe as an aquarium. And that the this aquarium owes its existence to an intelligent source. The fish in the aquarium can only know [actually speculate], in a very limited fashion, the nature of this intelligence, or its origin, if it has one. Further, it is not at all unreasonable to propose that the Keeper of the aquarium, is capable of intervening into the fish-realm in ways that the fish are not aware of.
