Ludwig Wittgenstein on God - Dictionary of Arguments
Hintikka I 374
God/Divine Viewpoint/Wittgenstein/Hintikka: if God looked into our heads, he would find the feelings, but not the reference. Hintikka: in the examples where he cannot see anything, it is about meaning. (>Intentions).
Example 1/3 = 0.333... here there are no certain sets of numbers after the decimal point, and even for a higher being they could not exist.
The claim that God overlooks the entire extension of π has no meaning at all. The only criterion of existence is the actual proof, if there is any proof.
God/Tractatus: 6,432 The nature of the world is completely indifferent to the higher. God does not reveal himself in the world.
God/Tractatus/Wittgenstein/Tetens: Diary notes during the time of Tractatus: The world is given to me, i.e. my will approaches the world from outside as something finished.
Therefore we have the feeling that we are dependent on a foreign will... In a certain sense we are dependent and that on which we are dependent, we can call God". (1969, p. 166f),
Wittgenstein orally: "I am not a religious person, but I cannot help it: I see every problem from a religious point of view" (according to Maurice O'Connor Drury, (Malcolm 1993, Rhees 1987, p., 121))._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
