the gods can make things happen outside of the laws of physics, gravity,
etc. If you could change water into wine with a wave of your hand, someday,
sometime, you will. You'll do it for your own reasons which you probably
won't discuss with anyone. Theists contend that not only is there someone
who is capable of doing that, but does, upon request, if you pray hard
enough. Frankly I like the laws of physics, gravity, motion,
electromagnitism, exactly like they are. I like the idea that they can be
understood, that it's possible to figure them out. If you see an anomoly, or
something you didn't expect, you can study it and maybe find out what it is.
If the anomoly was caused by a bored Zeus entertaining his latest girlfriend
we can *never* understand it. It'll be just some god moving in mysterious ways.
Peace is not the absence of conflict--it is the presence of justice.
