  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 615)...

    First of all I would like to say that i am 17 years old and I just read Ishmael for the first time and I thought it was an amazing journey. It has opened my eyes to many different things and I can never thank you enough for what I have learned. But my question is about your response from question #538 where you say that knowledge of the gods/God is unattainable. Is it unattainable or is it simply that it's not on our maps? I'm sure it's attainable but in your search you just may end up in new territory and I think that's something we're afraid to do.

    ...and the response:

    I've said that no means exist to determine whether the number of the gods is zero, one, or more than one. If you have knowledge of some "map" on which that information is to be found, then you have something that hundreds of generations of searchers have been unable to find.
