    so whats a good place to start if you want to have some discussion? I like---how do you define "the providence of God?"

    i don't see anything in the previous posts that passes for a working definition of "the providence of God."

    Dear Bounty! the working definition of the Providence is clear. This is optimization. Of creatures, of their lifestyle. What was the last year when you read Robinson Crusoe? That was the optimization, between tangibles, food and shelter, and intangibles, reading the Bible and praying.

    there are bunches of classics ive not read yet, and robinson crusoe is one of them. maybe someday if I live long enough.

    I sorta kinda get your point, but if you'll bear with me, giving an example doesn't replace giving a definition.
