What is with this ridculous and indeed blasphemous idea that explaning something through natural phenomena is to preclude any involvement by God? This "God of the gaps" theory suggests that God has nothing to do with the natural functioning of things, only the unnatural functioning of things. I wonder how people who claim to be religious can put their faith in such a limited God.

You just strectched my brain. I knew, of course, that the "God ofthe gaps" notion was wrong, but I had never articulated why.

Thanks
