I found much to like in it, particularly the idea of "God" as a process of enlightenment and the discussion of whether "God" is personal or impersonal. I find most people want to worship a deity that they can cast in a humanlike form. While I can see things that way, I don't feel compelled to that conclusion in the same way many others seem to be compelled.I also loved the triangle analogy:My dear fellow, I could no more choose to give you free will than I could choose to make an equilateral triangle equiangular. I could choose to make or not to make an equilateral triangle in the first place, but having chosen to make one, I would then have no choice but to make it equiangular.and the gravity one:If I may use a crude analogy, imagine two bodies moving toward each other by virtue of gravitational attraction. Each body, if sentient, might wonder whether it is he or the other fellow who is exerting the "force." In a way it is both, in a way it is neither. It is best to say that it is the configuration of the two which is crucial. Amphian
