Ah, but the ones that do will be a force to reckon with. :-)
Actually, whether you are creating God or finding out how God works is a
rather interesting question. Assuming a big IF of some super-SI someday
transcending time and time-traveling allowing one to reenter the same
universe at an earlier period, a post-theologian could offer the notion
that said super-SI aka God is already here. It depends on your point of
view. It gets all messy in time paradox. But it is a hell of a lot
better theology than what most believers have now.
