Have you heard of the God of the gaps? Perhaps you believe in such a God. The God of the gaps is the God used to explain things that we humans have yet to explain with science. For instance, the ancients believed that thunder and lightning were signs their God (or gods) was angry. Now we know, thanks to science, that thunder and lightning are natural occurrences that happen when the right conditions in the atmosphere are met. There is no mystery to it, and no display of divine emotion.
