Theology and its discontents are the source of endless confusion. To be clear, there are certain, specific parts of it which are problematic.
“God’s intent”, “God’s thoughts”, “God’s feelings” are used as poor metaphors for our understanding of some unfathomable necessity which precedes existence.
Apologies and Natural Theology cannot apply, as the “entity” in question defies explanation. You either feel, for one personal reason or another, that you can’t live without this “thing” at the bottom of it all, or not. I won’t argue against that; no one can.
But the “quotations” get dropped so quickly, and then the subject of the conversation becomes a truly disembodied mind. It is something without location or temporal orientation, yet it is something which has plans, thinks, and has experiences.
That set of notions is simply incoherent with the first notion. In fact, that second set of notions doesn’t fit together with anything. It is a word salad. You can’t convince me of it, and you don’t even believe it yourself, because there is nothing there to believe or not.
