Physics and Faith all in one sentence

I got a kick out of an article Robert Bell over at Libertopia posted in which he brought up a story called, “Faith Based Physics” (linked via title bar). Some guy must have been dropped on his head, pardon the pun, when he exclaimed:

"Things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but because a higher intelligence, 'God' if you will, is pushing them down,"
You have to go read the short article to appreciate it. Warning: Put brown shoes on first.

I had read an article several years ago written by John Pratt, which he titled, “Did God Write the Laws of Physics?”. It struck me as interesting enough to copy and file away for future reference all because of one line:

“Did God write the laws of physics or are they self-existent and God just follows them perfectly?”
I have included the URL’s for both articles and would encourage those curious folks who have had a chance to clean off their shoes to take the opportunity.

Tip of the Hat to Robert, or should I just give him a polished apple, maybe a fig Newton?
