What God Is

  • Naomi relates a story about Dr. Hoenikker. One time, he bet her she couldn't tell him an absolute truth.
  • Naomi claimed "God is love" to be absolute and true (26.4).
  • Hoenikker asks her what "god" and "love" are.
  • Well, obviously she couldn't define that. But she still believes, anyway.
