Maker of All Things
Maker of time?
Augustine says so.
But is time the sort of thing that can be made?
If God made the universe, we can ask ``When did he make it?''
[Answer about 1.5 X 1010 BC]
But once we see that time is different from change, we can no longer ask ``When did God make time?''
But if we deny that God made time, we might seem to be denying the ultimacy of God.
Are not we demoting him to be merely a Platonic Demiurge, whose activities are constrained by the Forms?
In denying that God made time, it is not the ultimacy of God that is being questioned, but the manufacturing metaphor.
