"Deep Blue Theism"

Could God choose to exercise the meticulous, micromanaging control over every instant that classical theism says he does but that Deep Blue Theism says he does not?

Your Say

Imagine someone who has never seen anything about modern medicine, someone from a stone age culture that has no previous exposure to modern civilization.

Now imagine they show up at a dentist's office and witnesses the doctor extract a tooth. What does he think? What does this stone age person think is going on? It looks like someone has been knocked out and tortured by an evil man - because he doesn't know what is going on.

That happens a lot with us trying to understand why God does things. He has the answers, he has the whole picture. We see life's movie one frame at a time. He sees the entire universe of everyone's life the whole film at once.
