Dear Glenn,

What I mean is that we cannot "predict" what God will do vis a vis nature.
Only revealed truth allows us to know God. Certainly our natural laws tell
us something about the Creator, but the laws are descriptive and cannot tell
us anything about the future of the universe. [I have worked on the Big Bang
but still make such a statement.] Scientists cannot say for sure that the
sun will rise tomorrow. I was using your very same word. What I said is that
we change our minds and know it. We cannot box God by our naturals laws and
say what He cannot do!

Take care,
