George Murphy writes, in part: ' But if I ask God "Why did you
create a universe embodying (approximately) Einstein's equations instead
of some other system, the answer will be "Because I chose to."'

You may be right, George, but I would hope not. Presumably our creator had some
reason to build our universe the way he did; I would think he will be delighted
to share that reasoning with us! Possibly more likely, though, he will tell us
to do a few millenia of study and figure it out for ourselves!

Maybe I think this way because heaven, for me, is not sitting around singing
songs, but more like a really really great college campus, with unlimited
opportunities for study and learning, along with like opportunities for creating
worlds of our own! Of course, I guess I'll take what's offered! < G >
