Day 9

Hobbes has been on my mind lately. Maybe there is a tradition of philosophers trying to fit God into their theory and they always have failed, but that doesn’t make Hobbes religious because it’s only a generalization. If all we can do with the question “Was Hobbes religious?” is to take Hobbes’s word for it, then there is no need for logic in the first place: we will only need to accept an inconsistency whenever we find it, and drop the whole argument.
