COMPREHEND WITH CAUTION…
My intention is to share what made me chuckle today. If you didn’t find it amusing, I apologize in advance.
God is so great that the greatness precludes existence —Raimundo Panikkar, The Silence of God: The Answer of the Budda (1989)
It is the final proof that God’s omnipotence that he need not exist in order to save us —Reverend Mackerel (1958) on Mackerel Plaza by Peter DeVries
PHILOSOPHERS AT WORK
The concept HORSE is not a concept.
The concept HORSE is not a horse!

God is what we really would call a metaphor.
I believe in metaphors!
So I can [say I] believe in God!
1.God is no being at all.
2. No being at all is God.
1 is sophisticated theology.
2 is crude atheism.
They are logically equivalent.
The transparency of theology.
3. God is being itself.
4. God is the God beyond God.
…philosophical theology is a pseudo-sophisticated mode of game… with willfull use of obscurity… —Dan Dennett AAI 2009
