Correction: "Bucky was the grand nephew of Margaret Fuller."

Buckminster Fuller often used the phrase "God is a verb." Sometimes he said "God is a verb, not a noun." I think it plays a part in his 1963 book, "No more secondhand God."

Bucky was the grandson of Margaret Fuller, Trancendentalist cohort of Emerson & Thoreau, etc.

I think Bucky's meaning was closer to the idea that the world works in predictable ways that we can decipher. For example, God is visible in the evolutionary processes that Darwin discovered.
