The above post by shaykh. abu Adam covers this: He says: "What Muslim Theologians failed to grasp is that God has two natures ....blah blah" He probably forgot to mention that a lot of Christian theologians failed likewise ... Interestingly, even Newton, arguably one of the most important figures for the Christian faith's claim to rationality today, rejected trinitarianism - and thus failed to grasp the utterly simple concept of a polyphusic (or multi-natured) deity. ------- Some further good reading on Newton's theology (papers I enjoyed reading): 1. Myth of the Clockwork Universe 2. Rationalizing Christianity About his papers.
