Marxist Hacker 42's Journal: And now for something completely different 3

Journal by Marxist Hacker 42

The Catholic Church considers the Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics to fit with our theology. But it also occurs to me that it fits with the problems I've run into converting analog to digital measurement. And THAT points to the theological idea that many people worship not the Creator of the Universe, but an image of God that is a model of the actual God.

    Are you pointing to problems in general, or some theologies in particular?
    As a sola scriptura type, I'd like to point to some specific English language scripture as a possible solution, but the same problem heads its ugly rear there, too. Guess we'll have to be humble and rely on faith, no? :-)

      More in general, in that all theology that ends up personal, ends up a finite brain contemplating an infinite being.

      My response to that is John 21:24-25 :-). But more seriously, yep, same problem rears it's ugly

      • Read Rumi's poem about Moses and the shepherd. Sincerity of intention is a virtue, and can be perfected - where clarity of intellect will never approach the absolute degree, where God is.

        The poem is in Masnavi Vol II.

        There is a serviceable, free-verse English rendition, by Coleman Barks:

        Moses heard a shepherd on the road, praying,

        "God, where are you? I want to help you, to fix your shoes and comb your hair. I want to wash your clothes
        and pick the lice off. I want to bring you milk to kiss your little hands

My idea of roughing it turning the air conditioner too low.
