Example text

I am drawn to the more mystical dimensions of the great world religions. So, I am drawn to Maimonides’ great path of negation in Judaism; I like mystics such as St. John of the Cross in Christianity; I am most at home in the Sufi tradition in Islam; and I love the Veda’s portrait of Brahman as beyond our best language in Hinduism. In my view, the whole point of thinking about God is to think about how to live our lives with reverence. The point is not to explain the cosmos or treat religious experience as evidence of a transcendent reality.

So, for example, we can say that God is good but also beyond our notion of goodness; divine goodness is not like the created goodness of a book or the goodness of a horse or planet. God is beyond our best concepts. CHRIS: I am deeply attracted to your position, though I resist it on the grounds that the negations you propose only make sense if there is some positive conception of God. That positive conception may be very patchy and incomplete, but doesn’t there have to be some apprehension of what something is if we are to have some claim on knowing what it is not?

CHRIS: Right. I do not think God created God, but I am proposing that the very concept of God is the concept of a being who exists necessarily. Existing necessarily is not, I suggest, some odd opaque property. I think there are necessary truths such as the law of identity: A is A, or everything is what it is, and not something else. The law of non-contradiction is necessary (A is not not-A), and so are the truths of mathematics (1 ϩ 1 ϭ 2 is necessarily the case); essentially 1 ϩ 1 ϭ 2 is equivalent to 1 ϩ 1 ϭ 1 ϩ 1, which is an identity statement.
