Secrets of the Primaverse: Why God Cannot Exist and Nothing Can Exist Without Him

Joel H. Posner. Metafisica, $22 hardcover (140p) ISBN 978-1-936940-24-0
Can we renew our acquaintance with God in such a way that neither casts Him in our likeness nor casts Him out altogether? In turgid, unclear, and dense prose, Posner attempts to answer this and other questions as he investigates the intricacies of existence, being, and essence. The author carefully examines reality, God, and truth as philosophical and physical categories, searching for their shortcomings and their values. In the end, he posits that God is, though God doesn't exist; that God is immanent and not transcendent. Each chapter opens with sophomoric dialogue about the author's subject matter—but, oddly, Posner offers no explanation for the dialogues. Posner loses all readers but the most specialized ones with long, opaque sentences that do little to help answer the questions he raises.
