Description
HUMA LECTURE HUME #2  01/27/2014 One general problem with anthropomorphism, an anthropomorphist thinks that god desires, think, plans,  that he understands things. The common feature in all these activities, is that they all occur in  time(temporal) activities. Contradicts with God being eternal. 4. Introspection never reveals a mind, the only  matters that introspection reveals are states of consciousness. If you don’t believe that god can desire, have  plans, have doubts you cannot identify with god, by using the mental states. If you believe that god is  eternal than god doesn’t have mind. The second state of mind is mysticism –extreme ver. It get its starting point from Aristotle, they point out that  Gods descriptions are sentences. For ex. The ball is read use the predicate of red to describe red. Similarly  if you say that God has a plan then plan is a predicate of God. To say that the ball is red , its saying that this  ball is in the class of red things .The point of this is that whenever you describe something you are  classifying it based on the predicate. This also acts as exclusion. All of these objects are finite. In the case  of finite job, descriptions work because we are dealing with objects that are limited. To say that God is good,  the predicate good describes God­ class of good things, when you deal with descriptive sentences involved  in act of exclusion. What is the minimum requirement to believe that God is exists? You must believe that he  exists. However, to say that God exists, is excluding him. Thus, you must be silent and not talk about god in  anyway, which leads to the strange position that you believe something but cant speak of it. Cleanthese  attacks dima and you believe in god, and state that the nature of god is incomprehensible. If you now think  about athiests and skeptics, how do they differ? They are non­believers and they like the mystic maintain  that this topic is way outside of comp
