Mardukm is going bananas on ConstantineTG. I wonder if he'll get suspended.
I have never seen that happen, no matter how heated his posts become.
On a side note, I really do wish that he would stop using so much bolded and underlined text in every post. There's nothing special about a bolded and underlined segment of red text, when half of your entire post is written that way; instead, that just makes the entire post incredibly hard to read. I must confess that I oftentimes skip over or at most merely skim his posts when he writes in such a fashion.
I could have used your input recently on CAF. They all got so upset with me when I told them that the essence of God is so radically different from creation that it isn't essence, it doesn't be, and it doesn't exist (something which I think is plainly clear from the Eastern tradition).
I was accused of being a crypto-monophysite, and of being 'too lost in philosophy' (a strange accusation since I never quoted any philosophers but only quoted the Church fathers). Then, when I gave them a Palamas quote where he explicitly says that God is not nature, if we are nature, and God is not being if we are being, I was told that Palamas, while being a saint worthy of veneration in the Eastern Catholic Churches, often was confused, repetitive, and seemingly self-contradicting such that he needs to be interpreted correctly (code for in line with Thomas Aquinas, is how I interpret that). And what is the correct way to interpret that passage? I was told, instead of that passage meaning that the essence of God is not essence in any sense of the word, and that it does not be in any sense of the word, as the Eastern exegetical tradition of pseudo-Dionysus would suggest, that the passage from Palamas is actually highlighting in a different way the doctrine of analogy, like what Aquinas taught. When I denied that this was true, I was accused of not understanding Aquinas (after already being told that I didn't understand the Cappadocians or Palamas) despite having studied one of his best explanations of his teaching on analogy, from the disputed questions on the simplicity of God, with several of my friends who are Thomists. Some of the interpretations I saw of the the Eastern Fathers reminded me particularly of this image Isa uses all the time:
O weh! I think I need a drink.
