Kids dig God


I am teaching a class on Aquinas and Duns Scotus, and we were going over the five ways to prove God's existence yesterday. We got to talking about God's eternity versus the temporal succession of events in the world, and how all evens are present to God, and I was very amused to see students looking up to the ceiling and exhaling in thought and wonder.

As Aquinas says, following Aristotle, even a little knowledge about the highest things is better than lots of knowledge about lower things. A little bit of good theology is a wonderful thing.
