Brian,

>>>You allowed God into the equation as a benign, grandfatherly-type deity, who I presume is quite [irrelevant] 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.
