In mathematics, ir*ration*al means a number that can't be expressed as a fraction of two integers, that can't be expressed as a *ratio*. There are plenty of irrational numbers; square roots are often irrational, and the numbers pi and e are irrational as well.

That doesn't mean that such numbers are irrational in the logical sense of lacking rationality. You just can't boil them down to a fraction.

I likened God to the number e in an earlier post, which brought the comment "How can you say that God is irrational?"

God isn't irrational in the logical sense, but is too complex to boil down to a fraction. God's infinite, so doing anything mathematical on infinity is problematic. e's timeless property of being its own derivative was my poetic device for understanding how to incorporate God into marginal analysis.

However, God *does *divide in three without losing anything. He's both indivisible and three at the same time; you want irrational, *there's* irrational.

Yet that irrationally-divided God is the source of all rational thought. Not everything needs to make sense to a math major in order to make sense.
