Example text

He developed his thinking along mathematical lines and attempted to show that the entire universe was mathematical. His work, along with that of Kepler, established the belief that the sun and not the earth is the center of the universe. This is known as the Copernican or heliocentric theory of the universe. With the coming of SIB ISAAC NEWTON, this theory was proved beyond the shadow of a doubt, so that today we recognize that the sun is the center of our universe and all the planets move about it in very definite ways.

Before Cod created the world, he had a complete pattern of the world in his mind. Then, as a light is radiated from its source so the world was radiated from God. Consequently, the universe and God are one, but God is more than the universe. God is in his creation and his creation is in him. Since God is one and is not divided, Erigena taught, so the universe is a unity. We may see differences, many individual objects, but they are all one. They are all God. " This universe is "an expression of the thought of God" and therefore cannot exist apart from him.

The Christians put the ideas or forms in God's mind and went on to say that God created matter out of nothing. After He had created matter, He had something upon which to impress ideas or forms. Further, these Christian philosophers taught that the ideas or forms, being in the mind of God, were divine. Therefore, in so far as things are ideas or forms impressed on matter, they seek God, try to return to Him. But matter holds them back. Matter, which God has created, is the principle which makes it necessary for things to struggle in their attempt to become divine.
