When honestly facing internal inconsistencies in mysticisms like Christianity, its spinmeisters i.e. theologians like Karen Armstrong resort to ridiculous ideas. On Fresh Air a few weeks ago she said,
1. God is no being at all.
compare the above with this statement
2. No being at all is God.
Number 1 is sophisticated theology. Number 2 is crude atheism. Yet both are logically equivalent. If you put them in to predicate calculus they are the same.
At this point I am beginning to what I call the transparency of theology. It is like a magicians card trick where you can see the cards up his sleeve. Fortunately Richard Dawkins has already answered Karen Armstrong. He wrote:
If sophisticated theologians or postmodern relativists think they are rescuing God from the redundancy scrap-heap by downplaying the importance of existence they should think again. Tell the congregation of a church or mosque that existence is too vulgar an attribute to fasten onto their God, and they will brand you an atheist. They’ll be right.
