As soon as you postulate the existence of an independent metaphysical reality
, such as the Platonic
world of forms
, or even the idea of good
, you will eventually have to resort to God
to back it up.
One or the other: If you believe in absolute truth, you're going to need God eventually. If you believe there is a set of truth somewhere out there that we are uncovering as we go, you're going to need God eventually. If you don't like this, re-evaluate your assumptions.
Yes, we made God up, but it doesn't mean he/she isn't real. We made war up too, and it's pretty freakin real. But we can also unmake God. (In our own image?)
