This is probably not the time to try this again, but not being known for great 
reasonableness and consistency, I'll try it anyway:

Marc, what is God's view of science and religion?  Does He separate the two?  Does He 
sort of have a science hat and a religion hat that He puts on as appropriate?

Of course, these questions are rhetorical, but I don't recall ever getting a straight 
answer from you on them.  If you have answered and I've simply forgotten, would you 
mind refreshing my memory?

The point that I and others on this list have tried to make to you but have seemingly 
failed to do is that with God all truth is one.  There is absolutely no dividing line 
with "this kind of truth over here" and "that kind of truth over there".  Granted, 
there are more important and less important truths for us here in this life, but even 
so, while the Book of Mormon is indispensible, so is the law of gravity.  So it's all 
one with God.  The concept of non-overlapping magesteria has no place with God.  His 
knowledge embraces it all.  And that's why some of us on this list don't care much for 
the notion of NOMA.
