Theist's Delusion

by Roger E. Bissell

1995

Because the natural world is just a sludgy sort of Parmenidean One,

Full of Prime Matter, base and mean,

There could be nothing new under the sun,

Did not our Dear Heavenly Father deign to supervene.

(This whimsical little poem was inspired by John J. Haldane's essay, "The Mystery of Emergence," published a few years back in Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society.)
