Here’s the notes for episode #15x of The Meaning of Everything show.

We tend to radically over-simplify religions. This is especially the case with Christianity, which we often think of as being about irrational faith in a supernatural God. But it really isn’t–at least the majority of it  isn’t–and it never has been. In this episode I trace some of the long lineage of Christian thinkers in history who thought it was actually impossible to understand anything about God.
