Theology must be distinguished from veneration; in the first we see the influences, we name the gods. We can call on their relationships with Earth and even contemplate their nature. This stasis is useless to veneration, we seek in gods what they provide, and name them only as keys. Each god then effortlessly reveals his own nature, ambition, in short, everything a theologian struggles to concieve.
The Babilonians already knew this: gods are to be found in nature. Even Leibniz accepted this, the finest among Christians. Specifically in the gifts to be saught in nature.
It is thought that this precludes philosohers from worship, that pure thought precedes veneration. If nature precedes thought, then philosophers are as capable of venerating as the next human. It is perhaps their choice of god which is interesting: what gifts does a philosopher seek in nature?
