Day 3

At one point, when I looked at myself in the bathroom mirror at a hotel in Singapore, I thought, “Forget about Hobbes! Maybe he did believe in God.” All I was saying was that Hobbes had been inconsistent, and if the argument is inconsistent, I don’t see how can it be true. However, if that is what some philosophers have been doing about the God problem all this time, it was just a tragic behavioural pattern. But before I knew about their situation, how can I accept the man’s inconsistency? Because he wrote half of his book about God? No way. Bottom line: Reality doesn’t need to be consistent, but a theory does.
