    Its precisely this doublethink that characterises responses to the problem of natural evil.
    Me: “Why does god allow innocent children’s eyeballs to be eaten by parasitic worms?”
    Theologian: “Because we are all fallen and sinful”
    Me: “So how is that universal unconditional love?”
    Theo: “Oh, its a special ineffable kind. Not like the human kind which finds innocent- eyeball eating abhorrent and yucky.”
    Me: “Oh, you mean like psychopathic love? Now I get it. However, I find I no longer want to worship your god. Now bugger off.”

  11. I prefer apathetic theology myself, although, quite frankly, I don’t see why I should bother to give a monkey’s either way…

    They are not wearing seat-belts! If they crash they will surely dieeeeeee.
    Moses is an inspired additon but may lead to confusion for newbies, as to who Mo is.

  13. If only believers would go in for this here apophatic theology! If only they would all fall silent before the ineffable, and then stay that way. If they never said anything – we wouldn’t be always quarrelling with them. But that is not how things are.

    Finally, a form of religion that I could deal with. If only the theists would actually do that…

    (But who am I to tell them how to behave?)

    If I weren’t an atheist, I’d become an apophatic apostle! I could go around preaching nothing…

    I love apophatic theology. It’s a short expression for: “All believers are complete morons except me and a few selected high-brow theologists of my liking”.

    I’ve taken the liberty to translate this into Spanish and post it on my blog, Alerta Religión, of course citing the source and noting it’s under a CC license. Keep up the good work!

    What kind of theology puts the driver on the right side of the car?

    Why, that’s un-American and an unsafe way to drive in Los Angeles.

    Not that driving is safe in Los Angeles, unless you’re a female news
    person assigned to cover the mayor. And I do mean “cover”.

    End of local news, the world ends at 5, film at 11…
