A Wordless God?

Athanasius's fourth example to prove the eternality of the Son is based on the relationship of Word and Wisdom.

"If the Son is not eternal to the Father, "proper" to his essence, then the Father at one time was powerless, wisdomless, and wordless.  But that cannot be.  How dare we slander God by saying that he was ever alogos?" - Leithart, Athanasius, p49.
