but in the application of that technology specifically
linked to our hedgehog concept.

There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.

Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
