Is it possible to think logically about God?

No religious system can be founded otherwise than upon the nature of God and man, and upon the relationship, they bear to each other. However, in order to judge the reality of these relationships, we must have some idea of the Divine nature. However, everybody tells us that the essence of God is incomprehensible to man. In the same breath, they do not hesitate to assign human attributes to this incomprehensible God and assure us that man cannot dispense its knowledge of this inconceivable God. Contradictions abound.

The most important thing for men is that which is the most impossible for them to comprehend. If God is incomprehensible to man, it would seem rational never to think of Him at all, but religion concludes that man is blasphemous if he ceases for a moment to revere Him. How is it possible to revere the incomprehensible.

IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO BELIEVE IN A GOD, AND THE MOST REASONABLE THING IS NOT TO THINK OF HIM.
( Jean Meslier 1732)
