Now That's a Good Question

The doctrine of accommodation (which is rife in the tradition, as basic to Thomas as to Calvin) says: When God speaks in His natural voice, He speaks like a philosopher. He speaks like a poet in Scripture because He's dumbing it down for humans imprisoned in a sensible world.

Scripture, however, indicates that God's natural voice is that of a poet.

If Scripture speaks in poetry rather than philosophy, how could anyone have ever discovered that God's natural voice is philosophical?
