What are the best books and philosophers for outlining a case for God. I am not interested in the side issues such as the impact of atheism on morality, or what demographic leads longer happier lives... purely the best place to go for a case for God.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Spinoza.

Though, I think it is a bit of a stretch to even call his idea of god.. um.. god..

He's not going to go for panentheism or an argument that god is everything/nature, etc. He's talking about the monotheistic, Abrahamic god... good luck on your search, CN.
