        It wouldn't but it gave the plans to mortals who did.

          That's because I do not live in world of invisible deities who tell me what to do. Clearly, you do. That's what "praying" is, right? Asking an invisible something-or-other to tell you what to do and solve your problems for you?

          Now...this thread is about "thought for the day". Do you have a thought today?

              You know you're getting old when your favorite jeans have more miles on them than your pickup truck.

                No its more about changing 'fate' by invoking the name and demanding a lawful response from the creator of the multiverse. He promised it so He keeps his promises. BTW sometimes the answer is no, so deal with it.

                Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman
