Current Favourite Quote

"God moves in extremely mysterious, not to say, circuitous ways. God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players*, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.
Footnote to above: * ie., everybody." -Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman; Good Omens
(The book is excellent, I recommend it, and both of it's authors, to anyone looking for an enjoyable read.)

  1. God isn't the dealer in a poker game; he is the Creator and we are the created. He does tell us the rules in the Bible but humanity keeps ignoring them and then saying God didn't tell them the rules when things go wrong as a result of disobeying Him.
