God and critical thinking

A foul miasma of ignorance hangs over Peezeeā€™s blog, which arises from his posts and the oleaginous comments of his many encomiasts. Among the offal, I noted a comment concerning God and critical thinking that asserted to date no one has attained belief in God via critical thinking.

Now, I happen to know of this commenter, and I would attribute his bull**** remark to his incomplete education.

We live in an ordered, rational universe that obeys mathematical laws. There is no reason why this should be so. To quote a famous physicist, "The most incomprehensible thing about our universe is that it is comprehensible." There is no reason why exp[i*(pi)] should equal -1, or why the integral of an analytic function around a simple closed contour in the complex plane should equal 0, or why many other incredible results from the mathematical and physical sciences should be so. Thus, thinking men (and women) have reasoned there is an Intelligent Causal Agent behind it all, and they are justified in so doing.
