  1. By nature is God logical or illogical? by PhilX in Philosophy of Religion
    I think illogical. There's a saying that what God does was not meant to be understood by humans. In fact it's hard to think of anything that God said or did (in the Bible) has made much sense from our point of view. What exceptions can you offer? PhilX
