Have you read Excellent Beauty by Dr. Eric Dietrich?

He spends much of the book discussing the "magical" beauty of nature, particularly the concept of infinities, and he admires them all from a secular standpoint. It's (nailed it )well worth the read if you haven't.

Re: Food for Thought: A Discourse on Deities

No, I haven't read it.

The brilliant Foucault's Pendulum, by Umberto Eco, is a novel that is a deep dive into symbolism, patterns, and "meaning" where there may or may not be meaning intended. In a way it's also very much about the power of faith. It is a dense, dense book, and I recommend it only for the brave of heart.

Our dear friend @Revdyer , who hasn't been around in a long long time, is a big fan of Eco in general, and this masterpiece in particular, too.
