Popping this into a topic of its own ... from here: Jordan Peterson has had more than one go at a definition of God this week. Each of the succeeding ones strain my conceptual vocabulary. Apparently, in an extended conversation with Sam Harris, he figured out what Harris sees as "God." A fair ways from anything as simple as The Creator of the Universe, The First Cause, but maybe close to other vaguely promising takes: The Ground of Being. That Ineffable Thing. Maybe the fun part of understanding Peterson is when he tells people without faith (in gods) that they are fooling themselves. Of course they believe in god/s. Deep Down somewhere. Here is David Pakman giving a couple of issues a go. Not as interesting as speculating on the money troubles at ARI, perhaps, but hey.
