Support our Tropes! Santi Tafarella on the Sensus Divinitatus and God the Dung Beetle
Posted by NT Wrong on July 28, 2008
Santi Tafarella asks, at Prometheus Unbound:
“Has Notre Dame philosopher and theologian, Alvin Plantinga, the author of Warranted Christian Belief (2000 Oxford), mistaken metaphor for what he calls direct knowledge of God? I ask this question because early on in his book, Plantinga made an admission that i think might be telling … “
Platinga’s admission is that he doesn’t ‘get’ poetry. And, via a discussion of God the Dung Beetle pushing the dung-moon across the sky, Tafarella asks whether Plantinga might be guilty of an old mistake — that is, mistaking one’s culturally formed perceptions for the thing-in-itself.
Cor … those girls look like real tropers.
