    That’s an interesting collection. Here’s one quote that made me think:
    “You’re forced to the conclusion that God was trying to mislead us and test our faith –and I have trouble with that kind of conjecture.”
    [F. Collins, evangelical biologist, 2006]
    He’s talking here about evolution, but I was thinking of it in terms of how people say that God had to maintain a balance so that the evidence for the Book of Mormon isn’t compelling, so that you have a choice whether to believe. That seems disingenuous of God in the same way.
