Two thoughts from both ends of the Religious Spectrum.

I have been thinking on two matters at opposing ends of the religious spectrum.

Consider these two scenarios. If a merciful and loving God created the universe and mankind you would surely believe that we would all be singing from the same hymn sheet. On the other hand, if you imagine that mankind created God, it is likely that the deity would reflect local culture and practice and therefore vary from place to place.
Now, ignoring the nonsense about 'free will' being a gift of God, which of these scenarios best fits the picture we see round the world today?

I have been pondering on Professor Richard Dawkins' eponymous creation: The Foundation for Reason and Science. Surely it is an oxymoron! The basis for both science and philosophy is mathematics and that in turn revolves around the integrity of the number 'one'. But the question arises; what is the number 'one' and how certain are we about what it represents? For example we cannot give with certainty the correct answer to the question; what is the square root of one and are even less certain when we talk of fourth roots? This uncertainty must mean that if we wish to build an edifice, we should do it on foundations that are concrete rather than the shifting sands of dubious mathematics.
