Quote For The Day

Who said the following about the doctrine of the trinity and those who believe it?

the Athanasian paradox that one is three, and three but one, is so incomprehensible to the human mind, that no candid man can say he has any idea of it, and how can he believe what presents no idea? He who thinks he does, only deceives himself. He proves, also, that man, once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without a rudder, is the sport of every wind. With such persons, gullibility which they call faith, takes the helm from the hand of reason, and the mind becomes a wreck.

    That sounds a lot like Jefferson, but don’t quote me on that. It’s been a long time since Intro to Theology.

  2. Kathy Says:

    I also think it’s Jefferson.

  3. Dan Says:

    That does indeed sound like some of Jefferson’s anti-dogma preaching. I’m going to go cheat now.

    Jefferson has some wierd quotes in there.

    You know, to touch on trinity, there really is a better way to explain it by looking at the human trinity: body, mind, and spirit. Father (mind), Son (body), and Holy Spirit (spirit). Three aspects of the same being.

    ALMod, that sounds like some hokey pokey voodoo crap to me. I could probably make a similiar analogy of the shell, meat and cheese of a taco.
