ABSTRACT. God’s innate mysteriousness, at least to human inquirers, makes God a difficult explanation. God’s nature as something defying the nature studied in physics, chemistry, biology, etc., is the problem here. How can something intend, without the brain that enables us to have thoughts and make judgments? How can God communicate without any of the facilities or faculties that make communication part of the world? How can God be a cause without any of the familiar attributes that enable things to produce other things? More generally, how can something explain the existence of something else if it is impossible to reconcile some of its own properties: e.g., omniscience, omnipotence and omnibenevolence with the clear presence of bad things within the realm supposedly explained by God? pp. 50–55
