It is good to want to be like God
July 14, 2014 § 22 Comments
God is infinitely powerful, infinitely knowing, infinitely loving, infinitely just. Who wouldn’t want to be all of those things?
Positivists think that they are God, that there may be ‘gaps’ in their knowledge but that those gaps are just contingent upon learning more. Postmoderns are at least wise enough to recognize that the whole notion of localized omniscience with ‘gaps’ is malformed; this leads to despair, but despair can be a bad news good news thing.
The problem then isn’t that people have a desire to be like God. The problem is the means that they choose.
