Did God "leave his fingerprints" at Cana? At Golgotha? I would assert
that he most certainly did. Did he, therefore, "leave his fingerprints"
elsewhere (scripture aside)? PJ thinks he did, or must have. Not an
unreasonable position to take. Did God "leave his fingerprints" in my
life at certain times? I assert that he did -- not in objective and
empirical ways I can "show" you, but certainly in ways I can testify to,
and have testified to.
Where PJ and I part company, I think, is in his apparent assertion, and
the above certainly comes close to it, that the TE position is untenable.
I happen to think it is not correct, but I'd not argue it is
unreasonable. In a couple discussions with PJ at the NTSE, we hashed over
Where Terry Gray, and Glenn Morton, and you (I think) and George Murphy
part company with me is, I think, in your position that the TE position
is the ONLY possibility and that the very idea of a God "leaving his
fingerprints" is, somehow, a very bad idea to contemplate or give any
credence to at all.
Enjoying the dialog. About ready to leave for a month. Later ...
