I have not read, and probably don't have the patience to comprehend, the complete works of Kierkegaard. But my reviewer does. He suggested I change the wording from the original "nonsense" to "absurd".
A pair of relevant quotes:
Referring to belief in god, Kierkegaard wrote:
"...there is here a certainty, namely, that objectively it is absurd; and this absurdity, held fast in the passion of inwardness, is faith."
Kierkegaard, regarding faith, wrote:
"Faith has in fact two tasks: to take care in every moment to discover the improbable, the paradox; and then to hold it fast with the passion of inwardness."
Both quotes from:
Concluding Unscientific Postscript
David Swenson and Walter Lowrie, translators.
