[Date: Dec/2005]

A got an epistemological question recently, from an old-and-brilliant friend:

What do you think about there being knowledge and understanding that God has and that the most brilliant among us are not even aware of and that the most brilliant arguments against God are, for that reason, like dung, stupid, insipid, etc.

I hope SOMETHING is useful in the above--
