Rufus says... Ok, Matt ... you determined that scripture and theology did not sufficiently answer the questions you were asking. Is there another set of beliefs which does? What is the source of any knowledge that you have? Have you yourself tracked a quantum particle/wave. Or have you even watched a paramecium under a microscope and wondered why it "swims". If you can't devise a belief structure which accounts for the observed behavior of the universe, then you are ultimately bound by descriptions given by others. And if you cannot refute their given explanation based on observable phenomena, you have only wishful thinking to support your beliefs.
