Inspired by a passage in Arthur Eddington’s Science and the Unseen World (New York: The Macmillan Company, 1930), here is a thought:
Consider the statement: “God exists.”
Some people think that that statement is true. Others think that it is false.
But could it be that both groups in fact really believe the same thing—but it is just that their use of language differs (i.e., they have different definitions of “God” and “exists”)?
