I managed to get to Page 11
on 27 April 2017
Bottom of page 11: "... it is, as I say, a remarkable fact that all Jews, Christians, and Muslims are agreed that God has these properties and that this is their status. Of course, one can find a few Jews, Christians, and Muslims who will deviate form this orthodoxy ..."
No, because, in the previous sentence, it says that ALL of them agree! I would also be surprised if most could rattle off the nine properties on their way to the supermarket, let alone in a discussion group, though, in Oxford, I might well be surprised!
This list of properties is written within a paragraph, and not tabulated, so it is difficult to work out which are essential and which are accidental properties. Even though they are dealt with later, it would have been better to introduce them properly.
Given only the slightest knowledge of these three religions it is NOT surprising that each of their gods has the properties mentioned. It would be surprising if they were different!
Also, in the preceding paragraph, it says that while he has divided it into these nine properties "some might sensibly divide it into a different number or indeed not divide it at all." Well, so they can, and probably put in a different order, but I would rather focus on the view in hand.
I did well to get to page 11.
