I could never understand why he refused to aknowledge the existence of God
I haven't read that much of his stuff, so i don't know if he enlarged on this. I would suggest that, as a spiritual person, that the traditional bible god just never showed up on his radar feild, thus he concluded that he must not exist. He may have refused to accept his existence on faith. I suggest this because in my explorations, i have come to accept that there is a collective unconscious, and that it works. However, the above named god has never been found by me, despite sincere searching.
