@Strato of Ga,
How great Europe could have been had it followed Thales and Strato of Lampascus and Carneades rather than that dead cult leader from Galilee!
Those who would follow him and them both practice cognitive dissonance - foolish compartmentalization, making for deep obscurantism.
Thales and Strato rejected what the atelic or teleonomic argument notes that the weight of evidence reveals no intent- agency- teleology behind natural causes and thus contradicts them!
One supernaturalist responds indirectly to this argument by arguing that God hides Himself such that teleonomy appears to be the case. That is the new Omphalos argument that He so deceives us with the old one about making things look older than six or ten thousand years. No, Schellenber answers that silly hiddenness argument that Hick puts forth as epistemic distance.
What farragoes of obscurantism!

@Strato of Ga,
". " That is the new Onphalos argument that like the old one , here of hiddenness, there of age, requries divine deception!"
John L. Schellenberg
