Paul,
The post that I wrote wasn't specifically meant for you. I just happened to be reading your post when the idea came to me.
But I will try to answer the questions that you cited. First, the reason why I put the word "thought" in parenthese was to illuminate the allegory between [ thought & humanity ]. I regret if the puncuation dissuaded the focus. What I wanted to convey was the notion of God being exempt from critique. We as humans create wonderful institutions and entities, that must be challenge because of the fact of our fallibility. But if I stand on the idea that all intellectual endeavors must face reproof to have creedance; then it holds that we must challenge the logic behind humanity. Which in turn means that we are inevitably going to question the logic behind God. If the statement of God's perfection and omnipotence is embraced as truth, do we then have the credibility to question said truth.
Also, the question that I asked "what is the purpose of thought?" was just me expressing a point of interest. It is to me that the purpose of thought is examination. We think to learn. What does god need to learn? So, if God does think and need thought, then what is the purpose of humanity.
