Extreme Dialectic: Spinoza and the Term (revisited).

"AS men are accustomed to call Divine the knowledge which transcends human understanding, so also do they style Divine, or the work of God, anything of which the cause is not generally known: for the masses think that the power and providence of God are most clearly displayed by events that are extraordinary and contrary… Continue reading Extreme Dialectic: Spinoza and the Term (revisited).

The philosophers are having bread and water that are hardly distinguishable from prime rib and Cabernet Sauvignon, and they are having a wonderful time.
