  • Jun 16 2013: I'm so SORRY! Thank you for correcting me! New to TED. Saint Thomas Aquinas quit writing after he had an EXPERIENCE of GOD that made everything he had written seem irrelevant to him. I still propose to Cheyenne that her question is actually (scientifically if you like!) better pursued in prayer (yes, even a "blind" experiment) than in debate. So you see, I can not take part in this conversation without "proselytizing" and I will therefore gracefully bow out before you eject me from the planet!
    • Jun 17 2013: Hi, Fiona !
      You wrote :Saint Thomas Aquinas quit writing after he had an EXPERIENCE of GOD that made everything he had written seem irrelevant to him.
      That's very profound ! I've googled a bit, but failed to find anything on this particular issue. Could you please provide me with links, if any ?
      Thank you !
      And here is a quote from Anthony de Mello :
      " The final barrier to our attaining God is the word and concept "God "
      Hope you'll enjoy it :)
