Kjell Espmark: 'Jag miste min biskopsstol för min grubbel'


I lost my bishopric because of my musings.

Could not rid myself of the description of God

provided by Plato in Timaeus:

The Creator forgot to include

his permanence in the system of laws

and became a victim of the transience

he had laid down for all things created.

This absent-minded God has his grave in the world.

With his dissolved brain he broods on the thought 

– it ought to resemble burgeoning grass –

of how creation can be re-established.

It must absolutely appal him

that he has created us in his image.
