Imo? They don’t contract. Especially if you keep hold with the belief that God is in everything. The earth, the spirit of everything, the forces of nature. For example, I personally believe that God caused evolution, and that evolution HAPPENED, but God is the paintbrush and the artist of the masterpiece earth would end up shaping and forming into, though I think his hands are a lot less literally shaped than some. But really, if you’re asking questions a lot, and learning, and thinking on the way things work, you’re not going against God. He wants us to know things, and to think, and to question. It shows you’re a deep thinker.
