The Size Of God

Reviewing a new book about God in The Spectator, Alexander Waugh notes

the ancient Jewish Hekhalot gives precise measurements of the space between God’s thighs and his neck, revealing that from head to toe he is 1,298 billion km tall.

(That’s 806½ billion miles, for those of us who still use sensible measurements.)

  1. Wow! Size must really matter! Wouldn\’t take much to make rough estimates of the magnitudes of other components of divine anatomy……… At last! Some data that will enable us to get the measure of Himself…………. Boggles the mind! I am agog……….
