Andrew Sullivan, Dear Gentle Reader(s), is given to posting discussions of theology (an oxymoron if ever there were one) a-Sundays.

Among today’s entries is a ditty called “An Atheist At 8.”  Precocious kid.  Not so Sullivan and co-discussionists.

Sullivan and his fellows all fail to make the leap from reality to metaphor.  All the discussions rely on the anthropomorphic deity as proclaimed by some in the human race. 

C’mon, guys.

These writings are metaphoric!

Not only are they metaphor, but the writing of tribes of the desert are especially given to heat-induced visions.  Some of those visions would be cause for an arrest warrant issued by the International Court. 

Trust, but verify.  (And we can’t; that’s the problem.)
