      and I have no difficulty balancing in my mind that science and the proofs of concepts and testing of hypotheses, not to mention the repeatability of experiments science requires, is, not unlike the ability to formulate antibiotics, administer vaccines, and perform life-saving blood transfusions, organ transplants, and other surgeries -- these are the gifts of a creator who intended us to thrive.

      What I can't wrap my mind around is any cult that claims such things are eeeeeevvvvvuuuuullll.

      Every last damn one of the white-dominated patriarchical churches does exactly that, though, to some degree or another.

      Why? What are they afraid of? Is their God that pitifully small and powerless?

      Or is it really that they can't imagine a God who isn't limited?

      They put such limits on their Almighty. WHY? What do they gain from that?
