I was also thinking today that the model of ‘God’ I described here could potential deal with the atheist self-description of ‘believer in one fewer gods’1 if I add the additional feature that every human-described god throughout history is a human projection onto the ‘screen’ of that infinite God. In other words, this is not one god among many gods, this is the Platonic ideal of Godhood, of which all other gods are mere reflections on the cave wall.
This is by way of being a mental exercise rather than a serious claim.
- That is, many atheists say “Well, I believe in zero gods, you believe in one, out of the hundreds or thousands named in all human cultures across all of history. You are an atheist of all the others except the one you believe in: I simply believe in one fewer gods than you.”
