The Nature of Infinity is the Nature of God

Note from the author: This article serves as a response to Tony Berard and his position on the existence of God.

Your premise relies on the assumption that the original definition and translation of “God” from Abrahamic religions actually holds water.

There are many religious passages that do not make sense, indicating a mistranslation and a misusage of definitions.

For instance, “I and the father are one” (John 10:30). How can a “person” like Jesus be both the “son” and the “father”? Contradictions indicate a lack of comprehension most likely having to do with skewed meanings in a game of telephone that has lasted perhaps more than 10,000 years.

Indeed, your reliance on the notion of “infinite” to qualify your premise, again depends on the indefinable, the incomprehensible, truly an argument that will ever remain in your favor, just as it does in Abrahamic religions (that is precisely why they must rely on it).

Infinity itself totally relies on our limited state of awareness, in which we much prefer the assignment of “infinite” rather than physically quantifying the thing itself. “Infinity”, in that sense, is an easy intellectual way out for mathematicians, just as the ineffable is an easy way out for religions because they are exactly the same: limited thought forms.

“Infinity”, just like “God”, must itself be finite, it must be “something”. It only appears infinite or “all powerful” from our perspective because of sheer incomprehensible magnitudes. Physics equations, for example, often take things for granted as a lazy means to tidy up the dearth of reasoning and comprehension.
