And how do you explain perception WITH God except by saying "God just did it"? If the God theory could actually explain something and not just chant "God did it" I'd go to church with you next Sunday and handle venomous snakes with the best of them, but it can't. The religious like to complain that science can explain a lot but can't explain everything and that's true, but they forget that religion can't explain ANYTHING.

The antinomy that theists can explain anything and hence fail to explain at all, arises from two different concepts of 'explain'. One is to satisfy curiosity and forestall further questions. The other is to describe causal relations among potentially observable events. I leave it to the reader which is favored by religions.
