22.4.02

I never seem to have any original thoughts. I figured out the philosophy of utilitarianism before I had ever heard of John Stuart Mill or Jeremy Bentham. And now it seems someone has stolen my theory of God, too. In my religion class today we were discussing "what is religion," and toward the end of the class Prof. Vecsey remarked that nobody had wanted to put God on the board as part of a definition. Amanda Reed said she would, but with a caveat. She wrote "God is not a white male on a throne out in space. God is interconnectedness in relationships." I asked her after class where she had gotten that from, and she gave me the names of two books by Sallie McFague that describe this theory about God. So, add another entry to my summer reading list.
