Philhellenes does it again

  1. His Omnipotence means power to do all that is intrinsically possible, not to do the intrinsically impossible. You may attribute miracles to him, but not nonsense. This is no limit to his power. If you choose to say ‘God can give a creature free will and at the same time withhold free will from it,’ you have not succeeded in saying anything about God: meaningless combinations of words do not suddenly acquire meaning simply because we prefix to them the two other words ‘God can.’… It is no more possible for God than for the weakest of his creatures to carry out both of two mutually exclusive alternatives; not because his power meets an obstacle, but because nonsense remains nonsense even when we talk it about God.

    C.S. Lewis

  2. „God’s ways are not man’s ways”. Stii sa faci un univers? Pentru tine este „intrinsically impossible” sa faci asta. Dumnezeu a tras o ragaitura si a iesit universul asta. Faptul ca tie ti se pare „intrinsically impossible” sa-l faci pe Superman nu inseamna ca si este imposibil.

    Imi place insa ca cineva crede ca 3=1 spune ca „nonsense remains nonsense even when we talk it about God”. Este ca atunci cand un politician corupt le cere cetatenilor sa fie cinstiti. Stiam ca CS Lewis n-a fost un geniu (vezi falsa trilema), dar nesimtit nu-l credeam.
