It's for school, lol. I'm reading (finished reading) Leviathan for Social and Political Philosophy and I'm halfway through On Law, Morality, and Politics by Aquinas for Ethical Theory (have to read the whole thing by Monday). Aquinas makes me want to believe in his god.

Didn't some pope make Aquinas's arguments part of the Bible, or was that St. Augustine?

It might have been Aquinas, and it might have been what he had to say about god being evident through His effects (movement, change, gradation, harmony, sufficiency). Pope Leo XIII stated that Aquinas's theology was a definitive exposition of Catholic doctrine, and Summa Theologica was placed next to the Bible some place. But you're probably thinking of St. Augustine, since his idea that God is beyond human reason is a little more prominent in Judeo-Christian thinking.

edit: And I looked that junk up on wiki because I'm not very well versed in my medieval philosophers

Augustine was a wicked smart guy, except for the whole idea that the conception of something perfect meant that there must exist something else more perfect, which means for some reason it must exist in reality since we were able to consciously think about it. Really weird!

Where are you getting your Bachelors in Philosophy from?

Or do you already have one, and now you're working on Masters or PhD. :P
