Aristotle etc.

Dear All,
Someone asked about Aristotle.
Aristotle believed that God created the world, AND
that the world is eternal. Because God is unchanging
and perfect, he cannot go from a moment of not creating to
creating, so that the world is as old as God's mind.
The work of Philo certainly shows that the thought of
Alexandrian
Jews (who translated the LXX) was deeply affected by
Platonic
and Aristotelian thought.
