  •  Indeed, who are the true heretics here? (0+ / 0-)

    As you say, "God is an Ineffable force which we cannot easily comprehend." I would say that God is that which exists at the furthest boundaries of Man's perceptions, his/her imaginations, feelings, subtle intuitions. In the Judiastic tradition, naming God was heresy, because in the very act of pronunciation, you limit God by binding it into a single word. One cannot limit the limitless, and I find great wisdom in this. As the Tao that can be named is not the True Tao, so too is God far beyond anything we can describe w/ words.

    The goal of the Fundamentalists, in both religion & materialism, is to shrink God into a clearly defined & predictable entity. Fundamentalists love the Ayn Rand A=A theorem, because it allows for no imagination, no spontaneity, nothing to be intuited, or even interpreted. God's literal truth is in actuality the greatest of heresies, the most depraved of sacrileges, for it contorts the infinite & ineffable and cuts it down to easily understood tautologies.
