    As I said, you've mangled your reputation for integrity.

    (You asked a stupid question: the entire book is about the evidence supporting his theory. What did you think it is about?)
    I suppose the Almighty looks kindly upon a little bit of honest deception as practised by his soldiers against the hordes of the ungodly when defending the veracity of his Holy Word.

    The "God-did-it" explanation is just such a gift for the intellectually lazy.

    It requires no observation, no data, no analysis, no attempt to understand the naturally-occurring processes which might account for the complexities which are observed in Nature, and of course, no work.

    All it requires is a surrender of the inquiring mind and a retreat to a simplistic comfort zone in which the all-knowing, all-accomplishing God accounts for absolutely everything - and no questions asked!

    I should add that it is the asking of questions which allows in the Devil, and we know that because the answers to those questions flatly contradict the Bible in terms of the age of the formation and age of the Universe, the formation and age of the Earth and the age and diversification of the life forms which inhabit it.

    Who but the Devil would want humankind to reach such ungodly conclusions?
