Intelligent search for God, embarked upon with the hope He will reveal Himself, has nothing whatsoever to do with understanding of nature or things we have yet to understand.

Many years ago, medicine was nothing more than a hunch and guess game filled with charlatans aplenty. Through in part to dedication of Christians to provision of health care, many advances in medicine have occurred over time. Many of the diseases we take for granted today had cures developed by Christians who relied on God for wisdom but understood man has capacity required or necessary to solve problems on this planet earth we call home.

The printing press — the innovation that turbocharged advancements in knowledge because books could be printed en mass and made available to the general populace, an hitherto largely impossible objective— was developed so ordinary people could have access to Bibles. This means development of the printing press was presumed on provision of access to knowledge, as opposed to search for spiritual phenomena that serve as crutches for lack of interest in knowledge.

An attitude that people who believe in God act unintelligently and contrary to scientific evidence can be dangerous in the event that belief in God in fact is accompanied by intelligence, intelligence which takes into consideration scientific evidence about which you may be unaware.
