I titled this book Random Thoughts overtly tongue-in-cheek because, as I have argued in the introduction and preface, I do not believe in anything random about why and how we exist in a nonrandom universe.

I strongly believe in creationism, one that does not deny the factuality of evolution in that creative process. The way I see it, the universe and our existence was schemed, designed, and finely-tuned by a transcendent supremely sentient impulse-God-who is not into acts of futility.

The essay titled “It's All about God” specifically argues the idea that God's creation of sentient beings-us-was His act of utmost utility because if we are not here to perceive, experience, and witness the universe in all its glory, it would just be cold, dead space out here, there, and everywhere with neither usefulness nor timeliness.
