The idea of God is treated as fact today. A lot of people see God as a discrete personality; God is a creator in the same way as you or I create something. In the 17th century in the West and during the Enlightenment, scientists and philosophers such as Isaac Newton and René Descartes believed that they could prove God's existence scientifically. They said science was the best path to all truth. The other ways of coming to truth, such as art or mysticism or ritual, were downplayed. God became a fact, pure and simple. Theologians like St. Thomas Aquinas have said that God doesn't exist like you or me or this chair. They said you couldn't say God exists because exist is too limited a word. - Karen Armstrong
Could you imagine if Science used phrases like "you can't say DNA exits, because exist is too limited a word"?
If there was ever a phrase that so obviously shows the inane meaningless blabber that is religion, it's that bullshit explanation that Armstrong digs out of the moronic Aquinas files.
Remember....you aren't reading this blog. It exists, but you don't understand the word exist. Or the word Blog.
