Hate to break it to you, but no, you weren't. You were attempting to rationalize the irrational belief. You almost started thinking but then jumped into the presupposition ignoring all the evidence that challenges your presupposition.<quoted text>
Think of it this way, your god is like a pair of black glasses with tiny pinholes to see through, and you're always wearing them when you look at everything. Take the glasses off, in other words don't expect to connect anything to your god, and then you can see a grand image instead of just that tiny piece.
This is why many scientists are heading toward agnostic theist or agnostic atheist, they have to suspend their beliefs in order to actually figure things out, in order to study the universe they have to test it without expecting specific results. Eventually they cannot justify being a gnostic anything as it would seriously hold back the progress of science. Your "god of the gaps" look at how a dinosaur family evolved into birds is limiting your view of evolution. Try it again, but this time do not expect to find a god in there.
