Comment 58 by BanJoIvie I bet if you tried you could understand why answering a "how did something happen?" question with "God did it" might impede the progress of human thought. If we had simply accepted that answer every time it was offered we wouldn't have made it very far.

Oh, that is easy to understand. But what I have found in my life experience is that it is the atheist that thinks that a theist will use this answer for every question asked of them, this is simply not the case. And how does denying the truth serve to progress human thought? If God did do something then that is truth and we have every right to ask how and why. This is true progression of human thought!
