Pretty sure there are lots of deists that believe in "re-jiggering". They just call it miracles.

If there's going to be any re-jiggering, why can't it be grass that grows to a nice, even 5 cm or so and just stops?

I think the constant need to mow lawns is a failure of both God and Science.

This is like that, 'No atheist's in a foxhole' thing, pure crap.
I'm fairly ignorant of most religions. I tried to get through the bible once, but after a while I said to myself, "Hey, why do I need to know this stuff? I don't believe any of it."
It's the believer's responsibility to know their written excuses, they're the one's who live by them, not me. It's not their job to know how and why I do what I do; I'm not going to concern myself with their reasoning either.
However, it always seemed to make sense to me that if God created the Universe, created all life, and counts every hair on your head; if he created every single thing on this planet and beyond, everything in our minds and hearts, then he must also be responsible for everything that happens.
So if he whipped the tornado up to begin with, why would you thank him for not killing you with it?
"Hey, thanks for not beating me to death Dad! I really appreciate your mercy!"

Natural disasters will always remain a thorn in the reasoned foot of all theists. To worship a being that is obviously so fickle and inconsistent in safeguarding their flock truly requires blind devotion.

Thank goodness it's (god) behavior remains a mystery of the ages. -sarcasm-
