I agree that the laws tell us something about the Creator, but I most
certainly hope that the physical laws tell us about the future of the
universe. I am scheduled to do a lot of flying in airplanes between Dallas
and Houston over the next few months and frankly I hope Bernoulli's law is
upheld each and every time I get on the airplane. If it isn't, then I am
in trouble.

I would say that because God is consistent, we can know that the laws WILL
tell us about the future and that they also tell us about the past!
