    I don't understand what you're trying to say. Is this one of those silly "There just gots' to be a gawd cuz this world is so complex and bootiful!" arguments?

    I don't think anybody knows for sure. Anywhore, if somebody did design this shit, they're a real asshole and a poor craftsman . . . er, craftsgod.

    What's a 'god of the gaps' argument?

    Google is your friend:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_of_the_gaps

    The phrase God of the gaps refers to a view of God as existing in the "gaps" or aspects of reality that are currently unexplained by scientific knowledge.

    The phrase is generally derogatory, and is inherently a direct criticism of a tendency to postulate acts of God to explain phenomena for which science has yet to give a satisfactory account.[1][2] The term "God of the gaps" is sometimes used in describing the perceived incremental retreat of religious explanations of physical phenomena in the face of increasingly comprehensive scientific explanations for those phenomena.[citation needed] An example of the line of reasoning starts with the position that early religious descriptions of objects and events (such as the Sun, Moon, and stars; thunder and lightning) placed these in the realm of things created or controlled by a god or gods. As scientific explanations were found for observations in the realms of astronomy, meteorology, geology, cosmology and biology, the use of supernatural explanations for phenomena was progressively reduced, occupying smaller and smaller 'gaps' in knowledge.[citation needed]

    what Bullshit, one who truly believes in god knows that god is omnipresent, from the thoughts we make every day, to the consiquenses of stupid things we do and also to the persecution and redemtion from those consiquenses, every second of the day is given to us by god and we must give ourselves to him, out life on earth is just a trial for greater (or worse) things to come.

    Yeah that sounds about right mrproper. I guess what I'm saying is just that beyond everything god knows about each individual, it was also him who
    created all things, including us.
