Quote of the Day - Anonymous

While I don't agree that God does not exist as a separate object of intellectual knowledge unless the author means that differently than I take him to mean it but in any case there is much wisdom and insight in this quote. An online acquaintance forwarded this to me via email for purposes of intellectual and philosophical reflection and discussion with other's in our little clique. He won't tell me the name of the author who prefers to remain anonymous but I am told he is amenable to anonymous public quotings. 

"An unknown is within the universe which gives it order and predictability.
It does not exist; it does not "not exist". God does not exist as a separate
object of intellectual knowledge; but neither does the atheist's nullity.
Imagine a huge junk yard with one million parts scattered around. Over
time, these parts assemble themselves into a perfectly functioning 747
aircraft. The atheist wants us to believe that this was the result of chance."
