Because humans understand things as metaphors, the Bible is full of them. That's what parables are. She went on to say that Jesus himself is a metaphor for God. That gave me pause for a while and I had to stop and and just think for a while. I think I like that idea. But, she continued by saying that because not everyone can relate to Jesus, there must be other metaphors for God. I'm assuming she meant other persons. This point I had to disagree on because she offered no logical train of thought as to why there must be other metaphors. It basically seemed like she really wanted there to be other metaphors, so there must indeed be others. I would like to see if she actually does offer some kind of coherent argument for the existence of these other metaphors, because I would like to see how she proposes it.
In other news, I watched Blazing Saddles for the first time today. Laughed my ass off and even snorted once really, really loud.
