metaphor: using inappropriate words to speak about what we know not

When it comes to God no one knows, everyone is an agnostic, and everything we say about God is a metaphor: using inappropriate words to say some things that might help us learn more about what we know nothing.

So when I am playing with metaphors what I am really doing is testing out the metaphors to see what they might teach us, knowing that none of them tell the whole story and that the map is not the territory, nor is the word God.
