Yes, I'm back. I'm short of time right now so I'll explain later. You caught my attention with a couple statements, Harv:
***Ontological knowledge is saying that what we know is true about the world.***
Could you give me three or four examples of ontological facts that you know to be true (in addition to the one that "Thought happens")?
***My only beef is that we should stay consistent with the meaning of God in terms of its historical and current usage of how God is understood.***
After attempting to distill the common denominator of what everyone considered to be the essence of God -- and failing -- I agree with you that we need a new term. But, since you seem to think that "the meaning of God in terms of its historical and current usage" is well defined, I would appreciate some help. It would help me for you to run through this list of attributes which are historically and/or currently given to God, and tell me which ones apply and which ones don't. That way we should all have a clear understanding of what God is. Thanks in advance.
