I do so love how contributors such as this one claim to know exactly how historical figures who are dead (and therefore cannot provide a rebuttal) thought, apparently feeling no need to provide reference.

And then there's this:

The intelligibility of God is so bright, according to the great Catholic mystics, it overwhelms our minds with darkness, and can only be penetrated by the will. Science is beginning to suggest that reality might perhaps be like that. Quantum physics is bewilderingly irrationally rational.

What? This could possibly be a somewhat valid argument if not for the fact that the Bible, and Catholic theology in general, is full of factual claims about the nature of God and the universe. Then again, if they weren't, his argument would essentially be "everything that science finds is God," which rather defeats the point of religion in general.
