“The person who believes in God and the person who does not believe in God do not merely disagree about God. They disagree about the character of the universe.”
C Stephen Evans

“When the children on a holiday have already finished playing all the games before noon and now impatiently say, “is there no one who can think of a new game?,” does this show then that these children are more developed and precocious than the children in the same or a previous generation who could make the familiar games last for the whole day? Or does it not rather show that these first children lack what I would call the endearing earnestness that belongs to play?”

“natural theology. The discipline that attempts to gain knowledge of God apart from any special revelation from God. Natural theologians have typically tried to infer God’s existence through theistic arguments such as the cosmological and teleological arguments as well as by reflecting on generic human experience. Catholic theology has traditionally affirmed the value of natural theology, while many Protestants, especially from the Reformed tradition, have been less enthusiastic about its prospects.”
