Dear Glenn,

To your first question, Why not? If God is not bound to do exactly opposite
of what our present laws indicate, then what do you mean by God's
sovereignty? Whatever God does is not like us changing our minds. We always
say that the laws we find are only approximate but will approach a sort of
limiting laws as time progresses. That is a very big assumption. Nobody
really knows.

Take care,
