From Sunlight, a bit of Rumi via Chittick:
Let us speak less, for if we speak, few understand. Pour
more wine, for we have entered the ranks of the self-deniers!
Existence is for women – the work of men is nonexistence.
Thanks be to God, for we have risen as champions in nonexistence!
Nice little youtube audio here: Jacques Derrida On ‘Atheism’ and ‘Belief’. It’s only six minutes of conversation but it’s long enough for Derrida to say it all.
Two fascinating articles on the return of Christian theism to the universities:
Nathan Schneider: The New Theist
Yoram Hazony: The Christian Alternative Resurrected: Why Can’t Jews Do That?
Hazony is commenting on Schneider but both articles are worth a read.
