I stand by this, but feel I should elaborate. It's not that I don't believe in that God, it's that I know, for a fact, that God couched in those terms is logically impossible. But God-the-Noun does, in fact, exist in three senses:
- A placeholder word for the individual's interaction with the numinous/pleroma, genuine religious experiences.
- A collection of transpersonal cognitive and behavioral patterns across a given social system.
- A semi-sentient memetic organism, a cultural construct.
In these senses, God of course exists. I don't see how anyone could deny it, though reductionist materialists of course try their damndest to reduce everything to the God-the-Quark.
As the Universe's Final Ordering Principle? Disproven. Next.
