And: On Scotus’s view, A is the same
being as (or really identical to) B just in case A and B are the same being, or A and
B are (distinct or identical) formalities within a single being, or one is a being and
the other is a formality of that being. Identity is transitive when it is identity in the
strictest sense, that is, when things are formally identical, when they are the same
intelligible formality (or set of formalities). Identity in being is not necessarily
transitive, for it is not identity in the strictest sense.
Please, read the article and truly engage it. It answers your “refutations”.
Haha, who ever said you could “touch” God? God is immaterial, as Mercy and Goodness are immaterial. But in God being immaterial, that doesn’t necessitate that God isn’t real. One cannot touch a soul, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t real. But, again, you have wrong view of simplicity, and you don’t understand formal distinctions and so forth. READ THE PAPER I LINKED ABOVE.
Lastly, you don’t think that thousands of years of philosophers and theologians haven’t considered the things your positing? Of course they have! And they have answered them completely. More research is needed to be done on your part. Many prayers your way to find the glory of God in the face of Christ. Only He can illumine you to the truth for He is the Truth.
