Talk:God of the gaps
God is a God of the Gaps to those who are perishing:
“”1CO 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written:
God does not reveal all:
“”DT 29:29 The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.
- I'm sure this is very profound HG - but could you expand your logic a bit? Thanks.--Bob_M (talk) 04:04, 26 May 2007 (CDT)
- No logic, just verses I found relevant. Hope you don't mind. But if you do, you can archive them, or even delete them. Heart♥Gold tx 04:50, 26 May 2007 (CDT)
I think the whole God of the Gaps thing has a greater effect on the rational side than just being "silly", as ID shows. You stick God into someplace, and it's devilishly hard to get him out. True Believers will often resist and actively oppose attempts to dig God out of a place we actually have an explanation for, such as the theory of evolution, or the age of the earth. --Kels 05:49, 26 May 2007 (CDT)
- True, but in that case they're not really working on logic - just belief, or training I suppose.--Bob_M (talk) 07:53, 26 May 2007 (CDT)

The section Life and Evolution says:
- One of the more prominent examples of current "God of the Gaps" thinking is the Intelligent Design movement, which claims that some aspects of how life formed are impossible to explain — not only with today's scientific knowledge, but ever.
- Another well-worn God-gap is that of abiogenesis. Again, as there is no generally accepted explanation for the appearance of life on the planet, the position that Goddidit is taken as default by creationists.
Tacked on to the end is the statement: "There is probably an element of false dilemma in both the preceding arguments."
Do any of these merit inclusion in the article?
There be a specific god to look after gaps? Or, indeed why shouldn't the deity/deities enjoy investigating the gaps in the universes created?
