If there is such a thing as a creator God, then the difference between human intellect and the creator God would be infinitely many times over and above the difference between an ant and a human


There is a qualitative difference between an ant and human brain. A human brain can think of things that an ant cannot.

Why is there necessarily a qualitative difference between human intellect and God? I certainly agree that God can do things better than humans, so there is a clear quantitative difference. But is it necessarily the case that God thinks in a completely different way, one we would find incomprehensible?

If God created the universe and the universe is comprehensible to humans, then it would seem that at least a part of God is comprehensible. Seems like humans should put a high priority to exploring that part.

If I remove your frontal lobes, you will cease to understand anything at all. If every cell in your body decided not to accept the docking of peptides from your brain, you would experience no emotions. I'm thinking that a God wouldn't work like that.

By the way, not only does God understand the ultimate unifying theory of everything, but he invented it! :o)

The idea that we can't understand why a God would do something (if one exists) isn't such a crazy thing. You know what's crazy? Anyone who thinks they do know.


Who I think is crazy is any non-atheist who doesn't try. Could there be a more interesting or important question?

Oh, absolutely! I agree with you on that. But to take the gaps in a scientific theory and push the idea that God must reside there might be pushing it a bit, dontcha think? :o)
