- "Would a God necessarily have to be a "supreme geometer," (95) committed to an ordered and rational creation? What if the creator had a preference for disunity and a messy creation?"

Creation and Logic
While a further advanced study in creationism would help better answer this question, my background in private schools and a strong christian upbringing (church on Wednesday and Sunday, prayers before meals, family culture centered around faith) allows me to have some insight into this question. I have always thought that God is that which we can not explain. Our natural human fear of the unknown allows us to formulate some type of greater human being. The genesis of most of our theories and ideas stems from our own internal biological feelings.We want answers to questions that we can not solve about ourselves, the world, and society, be it microbiological or astrophysical, (especially for philosophers). So from a human standpoint I envision these thinkers attempting to make sense of their world given the most recent and available tools they had. The relationship between creator and created is complex. Most human beings will have a desire to understand their conception or creation. Most will try to relate it to some identifiable phenomena they experience rationally or emotionally. Neither is wrong, it's what makes human existence a universal, and beautiful phenomena. Perhaps, the creator or creation point happened and it was messy, yet, as humans beings we desire to make sense logical and ordered sense of our world. Perhaps geometry is our idea but we want to pay respect to the being, be it God or science that allowed us to understand and have it discover-able. Perhaps we want to think of God as being similar to us, the rational thinker.
