← 20 Christian Academics Speaking About God

Barry Pearson's Avatar Jump to comment 33 by Barry Pearson

The universe we experience daily is compatible with a universe operated solely by unintelligent forces and processes. Each of those people appears to be fully aware of that.

Yet, instead of making the obvious default assumption, (at least until contrary evidence becomes available), each of them tries to explain why a universe operated by a loving god would appear exactly like an unintelligent universe.

It looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, so it must be an elephant pretending to be a duck.

Suddenly, it all makes sense. Thank you, 20 speakers, for clarifying things so magnificently. I now realise how important it is to have people investigate and explain how a loving-god universe should look exactly like an unintelligent universe. Isn't it great to be alive at this time when human intellectual endeavor has reached such a peak?
