Tragic!

In the closing pages of Process and Reality, A N Whitehead condemns the Christian doctrine of God – “ the doctrine of an aboriginal, eminently real, transcendent creator, at whose fiat the world came into being, and whose imposed will it obeys” – as a fallacy which has infused tragedy into history; and he insists that when the Western world accepted Christianity, Caesar conquered: “The Church gave unto God the attributes which belonged exclusively to Caesar.”
Alfred North Whitehead 1861-1947
