So here Thomas is explaining the doctrine of the infinity of God. He notes that Aristotle taught about infinity as the first principle of all things, which was fine. But Aristotle and all the ancient Greeks mistakenly thought that the first principle of all things was infinite matter, not God. Thomas rejects this notion and states that all the ancient Greeks were in error about the origin of all things. Thus Aquinas does not simply follow the teachings of Aristotle, as some modern philosophers claim, and does not accept Greek philosophical teaching if it is in error, as some modern theologians claim.http://humblesmith.wordpress.com/2011/01/23/infinity-christian-theology-and-greek-philosophy/

Nollan juuret ovat kuitenkin ilmeisesti Intiassa.
