On God

Proposition: Since God is beyond human comprehension, he cannot be any of those images which we habitually conceive in our minds. When we do confine him to an idea, or as commonly is the case, to a form that resembles our own, it is in truth not him that we are beholding but a mere creation of our fancy. He is too quick for our cerebral talons; fleeting to an ever higher altitude each time we attempt to catch hold of him. God will and must always remain a mystery. Curiously enough, in the instant we confer upon him such a title, he has escaped it. Thus illustrates his inexplicable almightiness.
