This is vacuous blather. Fortunately, it's not YOUR vacuous blather (you're
just quoting); it's theology's vacuous blather. If God is neither macroscopic
nor microscopic, if God is not subject to physical law, if God is
"transcendent" (whatever THAT means), if there is some state of existence
"not a part of the universe" (but nevertheless somehow driving the universe),
then all bets are off and anything goes. I'm my own grandfather, 23 = 4,569,
and horses drink blue bricks. Phooey.
