Philosophy finds its theories and doctrines frequently exceeded by the immensity of things, and laments this fact; theology, however, should rejoice at this state of affairs. Theoretical atheism, in its philosophical ambition, seeks to dismiss the hypothesis of God through concepts. But when God is the issue, the issue is never merely that of demonstrating his existence, or his non-existence. Rather, the biblical Revelation manifests God showing himself insofar as God gives himself, and in giving himself, God takes on the flesh of a phenomenon, an event, that eludes our concepts but requires our response. How we respond is up to us.
