Essentially, Shults decided that Christianity—and theism in general—are too incoherent to be believed. Certain theological matters that believers claim to not understand because they are unknowable mysteries are, Shults concluded, unknowable because they don’t actually make sense. For example, the reason theologians have a difficult time explaining how God can be both infinite/impersonal and finite/personal is because the two ideas are, in fact, mutually exclusive. I’m guessing that Shults would say the same about other infamous theological mysteries, such as the humanity and divinity of Christ, or the notion of free will against divine sovereignty. In the end, Shults decided that Christianity doesn’t make sense because it isn’t true. Furthermore, what does make sense is the evolutionary origins of our collective religious experience. ‎· Will

Interesting research he's doing, though. ‎· Eivind

A skinny one ain the far south. I guess it's really more of a Bible diaper :) ‎· Eivind
If it is that skinny, it might be a bible g-string. :^)' ‎· Will
