Dick, I admire your attempt to form a coherent philosophy from a "solid foundation" of a reality you seem to be not quite sure actually exists.

I will admit I don't understand where it is you are going with it, though I did manage to pick-out a few assumptions that should be questioned.

You allowed God into the equation as a benign, grandfatherly-type deity, who I presume is quite irrevelant to your paradigm.

What is the basis in reason, that He is not prone to interacting in His creation?

If lack of scientific evidence is your reply, on what basis do you dismiss the possibility that He is able to interact w/o our knowing it?

Another thing I would question is, when you raise the implication that our eyes aren't really there, and it is just a "belief", it would seem to me you have abandoned any rational point of reference for coherent thought.

This lends credence to my philosophical postulate that if the universe formed in the absence of reason [reason being emergent vs pre-existence per naturalist philosophy] there is no path to reason to be had, or found.

Just intellectual anarchy.
