    Religious Metaphors: Mediators Between Biological and Cultural Evolution That Generate Transcendent Meaning.Earl R. MacCormac - 1983 - Zygon 18 (1):45-65.
    . Humans can be described as existing somewhere on a descriptive continuum between the poles expressed by the metaphors “humans are machines” and “humans are animals.” Arguments for these metaphors are examined, and the metaphors are rejected as absolute descriptions of humans. After a brief examination of the nature of metaphor, all metaphors are discovered to mediate between biological and cultural evolution. Contrary to the reductionist program of sociobiologists, religious metaphors that generate transcendent meaning offer a legitimate description of humans.

    Scientific and Religious Metaphors: EARL R. MACCORMAC.Earl R. Maccormac - 1975 - Religious Studies 11 (4):401-409.
    For quite some time, critics have attacked religious language on the grounds that theologians employed metaphors that were irreducible. By irreducible, they meant metaphors that could not be paraphrased in literal language. And any such language that could not be reduced to words that can be taken in a literal sense, would be devoid of cognitive meaning or truth value. Since theologians claimed that statements like ‘God is love’ cannot be reduced to a literal sense without robbing the concept of (...)

    A New Programme for Religious Language: The Transformational Generative Grammar: EARL R. MACCORMAC.Earl R. Maccormac - 1970 - Religious Studies 6 (1):41-55.
    Recent defenders of the cognitive significance of religious language have had to face opponents from two directions; from those who demand that religious language be capable of some form of empirical verification and from those who demand that for religious language to be meaningful it must be capable of being understood in ordinary language. Apologists who have taken the first challenge seriously have strained to show that religious statements can be verified by ‘religious experience’, or by an ‘odd discernment’ or (...)
