What I think I know but really don’t is also nothing to brag about. What I know to be true is a myth. I recently saw a TV documentary about how we all live in the past.

If the Universe is Rational Must the Creator also be Rational?

The fact that science exists is evidence that the universe is rational since science is the rational study of all things in the universe. This being the case can it then be surmised that if the universe was created then the Creator must also be Rational? Continue reading
