Feb 1, 1995: me on alt mysticism discussion group:
“I’m still plugging away at “The History of God”, but it’s quite fastinating. Yes – she says that God evolves as human need evolves and changes. But God doesn’t really change all that much. The words used may change, but the basic concepts are very similar.
One place that I disagreed with her immediately (in a book that I otherwise *have* to agree in because she knows more than I do in the specifics :-> ) is where she says that we are in a unique period of history, regarding our beliefs in God, the period of time where it was popular to *not* believe in God, etc. This is nothing new. But I guess every generation wants to believe that their generation is completely unique, that the generation before them didn’t know what they were talking about, and the generation coming up is doomed.”
